The style of the famous Dutch sculptor Nicolaas Gerhaert van Leyden is reflected in the painstaking, calligraphic rendering of these figures, with their grace and spatial coherence. Van Leyden worked in Strasbourg and had a profound influence on Late Gothic German sculpture. The artist who made this beguiling nativity group was probably a pupil of his.
