    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here or here. Smaller enlargement can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    This is the center panel of the Paumgartner Altarpiece (link shows painting’s Wikipedia page, Google translated family German Wikipedia page) triptych, shown, with a different coloration image, and described, by its current-location page.

    A short description of the triptych can be found at the top of this, with pointers to the full triptych description, and center panel (Nativity) description (with its different coloration, click-to-enlarge image, and 2 click-to-enlarge detail images: this, described here, and this, described here).

    Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here, but many different coloration and detail images of the triptych are available online.

    In addition to the artist‘s Catholic Encyclopedia bio, Wikipedia page and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level), an extensive biographical tree of works and descriptions starts here, and a serial version starts here (goes on for over 50 pages, multiple works per page), with considerable overlap between the two versions.

    Third, of the 6 works (for some reason this is missing from the list today, perhaps others will be in the future), by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
