The Art of Empathy


One of only a handful of extant works attributed to the anonymous Nuremberg artist, the Master of the Stotteritz Altarpiece, the Mother of Sorrows is a fine example of the heightened realism that characterised much Northern European painting during the early Renaissance. Author David Areford seeks to reveal how this little-known artist was able to create such emotional drama within the confines of one small panel originally designed as part of a portable 15th-century diptych for personal devotion. The author shows how the concept of empathy remains relevant in our world today, and examines the influence of the Mother of Sorrows on the art of subsequent centuries, drawing comparisons with, amongst others, Picasso's 'Weeping Woman'.
