Fourteenth Century Work Donated by Museum Friends

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Acquisition of what was described as "an extremely important Gothic Madonna of the early fifteenth century" was announced yesterday by the Germanic Museum.

According to the Museum the work "is among the finest examples of that tender, flowing, calligraphic style that flourished in Germany from about 1380 to 1450, a style which is little known in America, and is not at all represented by original works in any of the local museums." Money for the purchase of the Gothic Madonna was donated by a group of friends of the Germanic Museum.
