Artus Quellinus - Sleeping child (1450)

Quellinus had been a pupil in Rome of the Flemish sculptor François du Quesnoy, who was renowned for his lifelike figures of children. Quellinus based this ivory directly on one of his master’s ideas. He probably made the piece shortly after returning to his native Antwerp.

Master of Hakendover - Repentance of peter (~1425)

The figure of the kneeling apostle is built up of diagonal planes that extend into the piled rocks. This compact composition directs the viewer’s gaze to very heart of the work, namely Peter’s contorted face and clasped hands. The apostle’s moral dilemma – he has just betrayed Christ – is dramatized with such intensity that the sculpture has a distinctly modern appearance.
