Footnotes

  • Although the decorator of the present lot is currently unknown there are some similarities with the work of Johann Ludwig Faber (fl.1678-1693), a pupil of Johann Schaper. The stylistic treatment of the water, the depiction of the figures and other elements all bear close comparison with examples previously attributed to Faber (see Helmut Bosch, Die Nürnberger hausmaler (1984), pp.336-337, nos. 269 and 270 and p.342, no.273
