Holy Children in the Bayerische Nationalmuseum

Bayerisches Nationalmuseum, Prinzregentenstraße 3, München.

In the framework of the International Conference Holy Children, Liminal Bodies: The Status and Materiality of Infancy in Early Modern Visual Culture, the members of the SACRIMA team joined speakers and guests to visit the Bayerische Nationalmuseum of Munich.

Veronika Winkler offered a presentation of Wolf Traut’s Artelshofen Altar of the Holy Kinship (1514), originally intended for a chapel of St Lawrence’s Church in Nuremberg; and Erin Giffin guided the group through the most significant images representing children preserved in the museum.
