Project Title

The German Master Hinrick Stavoer and his Context in the Hildesheim Sculpture Production c. 1500-1535.

Project Description

Despite Hinrick Stavoer being the only wood carver in the Northern German town of Hildesheim who is documented both through archival records and a signed altarpiece, past discourses have steadfastly refused to include him in their presentations of the local art history. My project investigates why, in the words of one author, Stavoer has to be dis-associated from the only work bearing his signature in order to be associated with any Hildesheim output, with view to establishing Stavoer's true context within the Hildesheim sculpture production, and identifying his oeuvre.
