Protector picture case
Museum Würth in Schwäbisch Hall presenting the "Schutzmantel Madonna" by Holbein
The “Schutzmantelmadonna“ is one of the most renown art works of the 16th century Northern Renaissance period. Recently, the painting reached nation wide attention as the “most expensive German lady”, sold by the Royal Foundation of the State of Hesse, Darmstadt, to the art collector and entrepreneur Reinhold Würth. The art world at large was curious to see the spectacular new artefact presented at Museum Würth, which is known for its excellent late medieval collection exhibited at the former Johanniter Church in the city of Hall.
The Holbein Madonna was a permanent loan of the Royal Family to the Städel Museum Frankfurt between 2003 -2011, encased in a HAHN Protector picture case which continues to guarantee a perfect micro climate for the long term future.
The master piece is shown next to selected artworks of the Würth Collection, among others the paintings „Die Geburt Christi (The Nativity)“ by Holbein the elder (about 1494) and „Die Verkündigung an Maria (The Annunciation)“ by a Master from the upper-Rhine (1468), both also encased in a HAHN Protector picture case.
