Christ as the Man of Sorrows stands within a lush network of leafy branches known as Astwerk, a translation of architectural canopies and tracery into a vegetal vocabulary. Among the most innovative artists of the late fifteenth century, Peter Hemmel and the group of stainedglass painters he worked with known as the Strasbourg Workshop Cooperative executed glazing programs throughout southern Germany and into Austria. Except for Christ’s head and part of his drapery, which are nineteenth-century replacements, the panel is in superb condition.
