Oberrheinisch, Freiburg?

Tapestries of Peter Sprung, Anfang 16. Jh.

About the object

Of the many tapestries that once adorned the choir of the Freiburg Minster, only four large examples have survived. Three of them were donated by the Obristmeister (supreme master of the guilds) and city councillor, Peter Sprung and his wife Elisabeth Zehenderin. Each one displays the benefactors, recognisable by their coat of arms, kneeling at the bottom to the right and left.
