Wilhelm von Mosen and Nicol von Forst were representatives of the Saxon rural aristocracy in the mid-15th century. As the followers of the knight Kunz von Kauffungen, they attended the famous kidnapping of the Saxon princes Ernst and Albrecht at the Altenburg castle in July 1455.


Condition:

The paintings are in a good condition according to age, showing minor framing marks and tiny nicks to the frame. The inspection under UV light reveals small areas of retouching to the figure of Nicol von Forst along with scattered strokes to the background, as well as some small touch-ups within the portrait of Wilhelm von Mosen. The dimensions are 20 x 13.7 cm resp. 20.3 x 13.9 cm, and the frames measure 30 x 24 cm. (cko)
