First published in 1904 as an addition to the corpus of Hans Wertinger, it was not until 1942 that Karl Feuchtmayr (op. cit.) recognised that this portrait's date of 1536 places it outside that artist's lifetime (c. 1465/70-1533). In 1967, Dr. Kurt Löcher grouped it with several other pictures bearing the analogous initials H.W., creating a corpus for an anonymous Monogrammist H.W. active in Nuremburg (op. cit.). The corpus included a betrothal portrait pair dated 1534 (Uppsala, attributed to the master by Ernst Buchner) and a child portrait dated 1539. In 1997, Löcher proposed that the Monogrammist H.W. might be a Bamberg painter called Hans Wolf (op. cit.), who is recorded as having married a widow of Nuremburg on 8 March 1537, and gained Nuremburg citizenship on the 21st of that month (K. Löcher and C. Gries, Germanisches Nationalmuseum: Die Gemälde des 16. Jahrhunderts, Stuttgart, 1997, p. 364, note 2). After Wolf's death, the painter Georg Pencz (c. 1500-1550), a pupil of Dürer's and one of the three celebrated Nuremburg Kleinmeister, became the guardian of Wolf's daughter (vide U. Timann, 'Zum Lebenslauf von Georg Pencz', in Anzeiger des Germanischen Nationalmuseums, Nuremburg, 1990, p. 107). Löcher poses the question (private communication, 22 October 2009) of whether this painter may not be one and the same as the Hans Wolf (d. 1542) documented as the court painter to the Prince-Bishops of Bamberg in 1518 and 1522, and who is remembered, amongst other things, for his interaction with Dürer on the latter's visits to the Bamberg court (vide K. Sitzmann, 'Wolff (Wolf), Hans', in U. Thieme and F. Becker, Allgemeines Lexikon der Bildenden Künstler von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart, XXXVI, 1947, p. 207). On the first of these, Wolf received payment for the materials ('Farb vnd das teffelein auch zu vergulden') Dürer used to paint a portrait of the Prince-Bishop, which was later copied by Wolf (Pommersfelden, Schloßgallerie, in 1947). On Dürer's second visit, during which he stayed with the Prince-Bishop, he himself recorded in his diary that 'Master Laux Benedict and Hans, the painter, made me a present of wine'. Writing in 1832, Dürer's biographer Joseph Heller claimed to possess the portrait drawings that Dürer made of his two Bamberg friends to thank them for their hospitality, noting that Wolf was 40 years old at the time of the portrayal (according to Sitzmann, op. cit., these drawings served as the basis for lithographs by J.S. Scharnagel). Sitzmann also records a Lamentation signed and dated 'H W 1511' (Schleißheim Palace, near Munich, in 1947), related to Dürer's treatment of that subject painted c. 1498-1500 (Nuremburg, Germanisches Nationalmuseum, inv. no. Gm165). As Löcher notes, many Bamberg painters moved to nearby Nuremburg for reasons of religion, and Wolf may have been one of these; if we accept that he is the author of the Nuremburg portrait pair dated 1534, he must have been active there by that date. We are grateful to Dr. Löcher for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
