Alabaster relief of Saint Marc by David Tissenaken. Mechelen. Early 17th C

A carved and parcel-gilt alabaster relief depicting the Evangelist Marc in his study, with an interior depicting a fluted column, a typical Renaissance paneled wall and a desk with opened book on top and a closed book underneath ; a city landscape is visible on the background to the right. The Evangelist is depicted writing with a feather in a book, while being seated in a remarkable posture, whereby his right leg is stretched far out, while his body rests on his left leg, a pose which is a typical characteristic of the Mannerist movement. An impressive winged lion - the symbol of the Evangelist - is seated next to him, resting his paw on his knee.

Signed in the cartouche : "D 4 T", which stands for David Tissenaken who already was master carver in 1612 and from whom - according to "Sculptures d'Albâtre de Malines" by Guy Bès de Berc - there are none recorded or known to exist at the time of publication in 2003.

The alabaster relief is framed in a later gilt-wooden frame with collector's label in German on the back.

Mechelen / Malines. Early 17th century.

Dimensions: frame: 17,5cm x 14,3cm ; alabaster relief: 12cm x 9cm
