Hans Pleydenwurff, or workshop of, (German, about 1425–1472), The Crucifixion, about 1460–70, oil on panel, Museum Purchase with funds from the Berchel H. and Alice Dale Harper Estate, 2017.1

One of the most innovative German artists of the period, Hans Pleydenwurff ran a successful workshop in Nuremberg that introduced a new style of realism to the region, influenced by Netherlandish artists. The softly modeled drapery and flesh tones, the clear delineation of forms, and the sense of symmetry in the repetition of shapes showcase the artist’s skill, while the solemnity of Mary and John demonstrates Pleydenwurff’s keen psychological understanding of this sorrowful subject.

After learning about this extraordinary new work, guests will indulge in a delicious meal of stuffed roast loin of pork with apples, apricots, walnuts, roasted new potatoes, green beans almondine, and for dessert, German apple crisp. Wunderbar!
