Catalogue Note

While Michael Erhart and Niclaus Weckmann's workshops began to decline, Daniel Mauch (1477-1540), a new influential figure of Swabian sculpture, in Ulm. The highly individualized expressions of the present figures with thin and protruding noses, the peaceful smiling female faces - contrasting with the emaciated masculine faces with stronger features - and the Virgin's long wavy hair divided in large curly strands are part of Mauch's legacy. The Holy Kinship, like many subjects related to the Virgin, was very popular in Swabia until the Reformation. One could mention the altarpiece with the Holy Kinship, by Daniel Mauch, circa 1510-1515, in the Saint-Francis-Xavier Chapel (Bieselbach), and another relief, circle of Mauch (Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, inv. no. Pl.0.199).
