It was Georg Swarzenski writing in 1921, who gave the name `Master of Rimini' to the Cologne master Gusmin, who was active in Italy as a goldsmith. It is now thought that the workshop was situated in Northern France or the Southern Netherlands. The delicately and intricately carved corpus appears to be closely influenced by this master as can be seen on close comparison with other extant pieces, most notably the alabaster altar formerly in the church of Santa Maria della Grazie, near Rimini and now in the Liebieghaus, Frankfurt am Main.
Swarzenski, `Deutsche Alabasterplastik des 15. Jahrhunderts'; Gotische Bildwerke, nos.12-15; Wixom, no.215
