Excerpt from Peter Vischer

HE Germans have by nature the gift of working in metal, and, among them, in the realms of bronze, Peter Vischer stands easily first. His position as a craftsman may, in fact, be com pared with that held by his contemporary and fellow citizen, Albert Durer, as an artist. The history of his works and of those of his house, have a peculiar interest to the student of art, in asmuch as they illustrate the gradual but easily traceable passage of the German craftsmen from the style of late Gothic to that of complete. Neo paganism, and from the school of the Northern painters and sculptors to that of the great Italian masters successively.
