Medical prescription, satirical artwork

Medical prescription. Satirical artwork titled 'Of Prescribing Foolishly', showing a patient in bed with a doctor in a fool's hat (right) holding aloft a proposed treatment. This artwork was by the German painter Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). It illustrated chapter 52 of 'Das Narrenschiff' (Ship of Fools, 1494), a collection of morality tales of medieval vices as told by the German humanist Sebastian Brant (1457-1521). This artwork, from the 1497 Latin edition, was reproduced in the German book 'Die Karikatur und Satire in der Medizin' (Caricature and Satire in Medicine, 1921) by the German art historian and physician Eugen Hollander (1867-1932)

Christ Carried to Heaven by Angels, c. 1515-1517. Creator: Hans Baldung (German, 1484/85-1545)

Christ Carried to Heaven by Angels, c. 1515-1517. Baldung, who lived in Strasbourg, was Albrecht Durer's most talented pupil. A highly original artist, he produced about 550 woodcuts. The origin of his nickname, Grien, to which the G in his monogram refers, is unclear. It may allude to his predilection for the colour green, or it may derive from Grienhans, meaning devil (demonic fantasies appear in some of the artist's works). Baldung often avoided conventional compositions in favor of an innovative depiction of greater pathos and drama. Although a living Christ had long been shown ascending to heaven, Baldung's representation-in which Christ's corpse is carried heavenward by angels-is unprecedented. In contrast to the celestial splendor at the top of this composition, where God the Father and the dove of the Holy Spirit are illuminated by a burst of radiant light, Christ is shown in a harshly awkward position, accentuating his torment and suffering. The angels labor to carry the heavy body, which appears to be sinking downward-reminiscent of scenes of the Entombment, in which Christ is lowered into a grave. This devotional image gives visual form to one of the central mysteries of the Christian faith, the contradiction between Christ's human suffering and his divine nature, symbolized by the grandeur of heaven

The Fall and Redemption of Man: The Virgin as Queen of Heaven, c

The Fall and Redemption of Man: The Virgin as Queen of Heaven, c. 1513. These eight woodcuts come from a series of forty which illustrate the story of Christian redemption from original sin to the Last Judgement. Probably to maximize printing efficiency and quality, eight woodblocks were printed on each of five sheets of paper, but the subjects are not in the correct chronological order. Prior to sale, the sheets were cut into eight pieces. The sheets in the museum's set were only cut in half, preserving four prints per page. The numbers after the titles of the individual images indicate each scene's place within the narrative. By 1513, Altdorfer had already executed a number of small, finely detailed engravings. Because it is difficult to achieve the same degree of precision using woodcut, The Fall and Redemption of Man is a technical tour de force. Probably inspired by Albrecht Durer's Small Passion (1511)-but almost double the size-the only contemporaneous comparable set of fine miniature woodcuts, Dance of Death, was designed by Hans Holbein in about 1526 (on view nearby)
