Christoph Daniel Schenck

Mourning Angel, um 1685

About the object

This carved figure may have been part of a lamentation scene. It is conceivable that it was intended to underline the grief of another figure in a depiction. The angel is kneeling, its eyes lowered with arms held aloft. Its robe is gilded and draped in a virtuoso manner. Schenck, the sculptor of this piece, received little attention for a long time, but is particularly appreciated nowadays for his expressive small-format sculptures.
