Description: Item # 4221. A pair (2) of 17th Century Gothic carved wood figures in relief of two Saints: Matthew and Mark. The figures are possibly from Central Europe; they were brought out of Hungary in 1955. Each is 7" wide and 18" tall. Originally polychromed. Condition: paint and gesso loss - worm holes; minor wood loses. Very well carved. Exhibited in Marble House in 2010 in The Gothic Library for an exhibition titled: “Vanderbilt Treasures Return: Gothic Art in the Gilded Age” The previous owners escaped Hungary with their collection of Medieval art and re-located in Massachusetts. One figure has the head of an Angel (there is evidence of gold gilt work on one of the wings) at his feet and the other the head of a lion. Hard to say where they were made: the family had documented pieces from Northern Italy, Germany, Austria and Hungary.

Exhibited: Exhibited in Marble House in 2010 in The Gothic Library for an exhibition titled: “Vanderbilt Treasures Return: Gothic Art in the Gilded Age”
