RODE Altarpiece on Niguliste Art Museum of Estonia
The retable was commissioned from the workshop of the famous Lübeck master Hermen Rode in 1478, and it arrived in Tallinn in 1481. More than forty saints and biblical figures are depicted in the retable and its dimensions place it among the largest retables from the 15th-century Hanseatic cities. Rode Altarpiece in Close-up: the every-day activities of the team are mediated via web-page and blog. A multimedia installation provides visitors with information on the history of this splendid retable, the saints and their legends depicted therein.
