Those that survived the Reformation and destruction in later centuries document the amazing skills of the team of sculptors, painters and joiners who collaborated in their production. From devout stagings of miracles to sober images of saints to ostentatious displays of worldly fashions, readers are presented with a stunning series of details – riotous locks of hair, swirling fabric and thickets of twisted vines. This sumptuously illustrated survey features twenty-two of the most outstanding carved altarpieces from churches in southern Germany, Austria, South Tirol, the Czech Republic and Kraków. An extensive introduction provides the background to an understanding of the origin and evolution of altarpieces and maps the distribution of those that have survived.
