Christopher Paudiß: Saint Andrew the Apostle
Saint Andrew the Apostle
Object type painting
English: Christoph Paudiss was a little-known German artist who studied with Rembrandt during the 1640s. Paudiss's ethereal depiction of Andrew, one of Christ's original disciples, meditating on the cross upon which he will die a martyr, reflects Rembrandt's sensitive use of shadow and emphasis on probing, close-up studies of figures at moments of traumatic stress. Paudiss returned to Germany and worked at various courts. The style and religious subject matter of this painting are consistent with his work in his last years for the archbishop of Bavaria.
