The Master of Rimini and the tradition of alabaster carving in the early 15th century Netherlands.
Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek, 62
The article appears in a themed volume on materials of sculpture, and focuses on the material practices, markets and workshop practices of the Master of Rimini, an impressive, enigmatic specialist alabaster sculptor working around the 1430s. Scholarship on him emerged in Germany between the 1920s and the 1960s, and this article is arguably the first major article to reconsider his work as awhole since 1969. He has never been identified or definitively located, and a tentative identification is suggested in the article.
