Provenance: Weinmuller, Munich, Auction 105, 15-17 March 1967, lot number 1246.
Lot Number: 45
Notes: Standing turned slightly to the right, an orb in his left hand (added). Polychrome painting restored, some losses to the surface colour. Realistically modelled with lifelike quality, similar to the Christ Child of Altenhohenau by the Master of Seeon. The Master of Seeon is named after his famous sculpture of the Virgin enthroned with Child from the Bendictine Monastery at Seeon. It is one of his most important works and has been at the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum in Munich since 1855. It is possible that this famous master, and his byname, could be the named sculptor Hans Paldauf, who settled in Passau in 1459 having left Salzburg. Cf. Miller, Albrecht, Der Meister von Seeon, in: Mühldorf am Inn, Salzburg in Bayern, 935. 1802. 2002. Mühldorf 2002, p. 132 - 145.
