SUPERSTRUCTURE OF MASTER PAUL’S ALTARPIECE IN LEVOČA WITH THE FIGURES OF APOSTLES. AN ACT OF ARTISTIC COMMEMORATION?
Languages of publication
The article concerns the group of twelve figures presenting the apostles. They are located in the retable in the church of St James in Levoča. First, the article presents the original context of the figures' creation. The author supports an argument, long known in relevant literature that the figures were part of the adornment of the retable which was placed in the choir of St James church in Levoča in the 14th century. The main thesis of the article is the assumption that while creating the concept of the new retable Pavel of Levoča not only used the figures themselves, but he was also inspired by the structure of the previous retable when designing the new one.
