Chapter Summary

This section of the book Moving Sculptures contains documents of Southern Netherlandish Alabasters from the 16th to 17th Centuries in Central and Northern Europe. One of the documents discusses about a letter issued from the Saxon elector, Augustus, to Count Hans von Dehn-Rothfelser regarding the dispatch to the Low Countries of portraits of the duke's ancestors as models for the stone images to be incorporated into an altarpiece he had commissioned. Another document offers the information that the Magdeburg merchant Albrecht Werner had deposited alabaster reliefs bought in Antwerp for storage with the stonemason Ruprecht Gockel in Königsberg.

Keywords: alabaster reliefs; Augustus; Central and Northern Europe; duke's ancestors; Southern Netherlandish alabasters
