Catalogue Note

The drapery style and the treatment to the hair and faces of these arresting figures, with almond eyes and undulating hair and beard, recall sculptural representations emanating from Eastern France, in particular the Lorraine region. Note the tympanum above the South entrance of St. Mary's church in Vic-sur-seille illustrated by J. A. Schmoll gen. Eisenwerth, Die Lothringische Skulptur des 14. Jahrhunderts: Ihre Voraussetzungen in der Südchampagne und ihre ausserlothringischen Beziehungen, Petersberg, 2005, pp. 320-322 and 337-338.
