Square Panel with Vegetal Scrollwork, Flowers and Fruits

Bernhard Zan German

Not on view

Sheet from a series of 40 goldsmith's designs, published by Zan in 1581 and again in 1584 by Stephan Hermann. The print shows a square panel with an all-over pattern of vegetal scrollwork. In the center of the design a calyx is hung upside down from which swirling scrolls spring forth. An abundance of leaves, flowers and fruits is attached to smaller stems. On the verso of the sheet a pattern for what appears to be a pleaded object, perhaps a fan, has been drawn in pen and ink.
