from MASTER PRINTS IN 15TH-CENTURY GERMANY: EMERGENCE AND DEVELOPMENT by G. KISLYKH --- "While choosing the story and the composition, woodcutters looked for inspiration to the well-known altarpieces. A medieval cathedral with its artistic richness, concentrating the culture and the art of the past, became a source of models for many a woodcutter. Painted and sculpted decorations of the cathedrals were used to design a woodcut, stained-glass windows could serve as models for colouring the prints. Bright and strong colours of stained-glass windows were familiar to both the creators of the woodcuts and their customers."
