Gospel Book with Evangelist Portraits: Saint Mark, c. 1480. Creator: Hausbuch Master (German)

Gospel Book with Evangelist Portraits: Saint Mark, c. 1480. Each of the four gospels, here in Latin, are preceded by a full-page miniature of the appropriate Evangelist. As is conventional, the Evangelists are represented as contemporary scribes seated at a lectern surrounded by all the accouterments of the trade---inkpots, quill pens, penknives, etc. The miniatures style is characteristically German late Gothic in its expressive use of angular drapery and realistic detail. Each miniature, however, bears the marks of The Hausbuch Masters hand: notice the terrace space for each figure and the emphasis on realistically rendered details, such as the furniture construction and the tools of the scribe as well as the facial types, with their heavy-lidded, downcast eyes. This artist was occasionally noted for his humor, as here in the portrait of the Evangelist John in which he depicted the saint erasing an error in his text with a pen knife in his left hand and a quill pen in his right. The skillful penwork, tracery, vine scrolls, and the large initials are the work of the other artists. The binding is original. The Hausbuch Master is known primarily for an album of lively drawings as well as some ninety copper engravings. He was also a panel painter of some distinction

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a Gospel Book with Evangelist Portraits, specifically Saint Mark, created by the renowned German artist known as the Hausbuch Master around 1480. The book features each of the four gospels in Latin, accompanied by a full-page miniature of the corresponding Evangelist. In line with tradition, these miniatures depict contemporary scribes seated at lecterns surrounded by various tools of their trade such as inkpots, quill pens, and penknives. The distinctive style of this late Gothic artwork is characterized by angular drapery and meticulous attention to detail. The Hausbuch Master's touch can be seen in every aspect of these miniatures - from the carefully constructed furniture to the realistic rendering of facial features like heavy-lidded eyes that gaze downward. This particular artist was also known for his playful sense of humor, evident in his depiction of Saint John erasing an error in his text using a pen knife held in his left hand while holding a quill pen in his right. While other artists contributed to this masterpiece through their skillful penwork and intricate designs such as tracery and vine scrolls, it is important to note that the binding remains original. The Hausbuch Master's artistic talents extended beyond illuminating manuscripts; he was also recognized for an album filled with lively drawings and approximately ninety copper engravings. Additionally, he achieved distinction as a panel painter. This remarkable print captures not only the beauty but also the historical significance of this Gospel Book with Evangelist Portraits created by none other than the talented Hausbuch Master himself.
