Der Kölner Dom

This triptych, which was painted sometime around 1442 by the Cologne-based artist Stefan Lochner (d.1451) for Cologne’s city council chapel, is the most significant example of the Late Gothic Cologne school of painting.

The St Agilulfus altar-piece, a polyptych that once decorated the high altar in the Gothic east choir of the Church of Maria ad Gradus in Cologne, is one of the largest and most important of all Antwerp carved altar-pieces. (DPhoto)
