Chapter Summary

This chapter covers over twenty years of Paul Lautensack's activity, from 1535 to his death in 1558. This is possible because the Pater noster and Credo cycles are the richest and complex speculative works produced by the Nuremberg painter. The chapter shows how Lautensack there developed new ways, beside the standard grid, to present his material. It discusses extensions of familiar series of names or signs and new ways of quoting the Bible that appear very occasionally in these two manuscripts but gain greater importance in his later works. After a discussion of Lautensack's interest in celestial prodigies, which play an important role in his tracts from his last autograph onward. The chapter explores how Lautensack increasingly compartmentalized large pictorial compositions, as in his 'Evangelists', and so created the format of the rectangular grid, which covers the entire page and displays headings, quotations, lists, letters and images of different sizes.
