Description - The Art of Empathy by David Areford

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'. AUTHOR: David S. Areford is an independent scholar and the Brooklyn Museum's Curator of American Art. SELLING POINTS: Seeks to reveal how the artist of a 15th-century altarpiece creates emotional drama, and empathy from the viewer A new illustrated focus volume on this extremely rare panel depicting the 'Mother of Sorrows,' which dates from the late 1400s Examines how the artist creates an emotional response in the viewer, and compares it to modern works such as Picasso's 'Weeping Woman' 50 colour illustrations
