The Role of Nazarenism in the Renewal of Late Medieval Works: Johann Gruss the Elder’s Restoration of The Feast of the Rose Garlands by Albrecht Dürer

Kotková, Olga

This article focuses on the restoration of Dürer's famous painting The Feast of the Rose Garlands (National Gallery in Prague). The restoration work was done by Johann Gruss the Elder in 1839 – 1841. Gruss was a painter from Litoměřice in northern Bohemia. His work shows a degree of skill and knowledge of contemporary Nazarene art, which he applied in a somewhat stiff and simplified form. He was most influenced by the paintings, drawings and prints of Joseph Führich.
