Lot No. 150


Workshop of Hans Rottenhammer


(Munich 1564–1625 Augsburg)
The Raising of Lazarus,
oil on copper, 27.5 x 36.5 cm, framed

The composition of the present painting has previously only been known in the form of two drawings owned by the Albertina in Vienna and the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York (see Hans Rottenhammer, begehrt – vergessen – neu entdeckt, exhibition catalogue, Lemgo/Prague 2008/9, pp. 114–116). The painting precisely follows the Vienna preliminary drawing, which differs from the New York sheet in several details. The choice of subject matter and the late Mannerist stylistic features betrayed by the painting reflect Rottenhammer’s preoccupation with contemporary Italian art in general and especially with the art of his role models, Taddeo Zuccari and Cavalier d’Arpino.
