Object Description: The Beautiful Virgin was a statue (after an Altdorfer painting of the same subject inside the church) at a popular pilgrimage church in Regensburg in southern Germany. Ostendorfer represents the statue of the Virgin and Child being adored by a crowd of pilgrims. He accentuates the extreme practices of the pilgrims who visited this site, showing figures throwing themselves against the base of the Virgin’s statue or prostrating themselves before her. Unlike A Devotional Virgin, this print can be seen as an expression of Reformation ideology in its condemnation of the worship of saints by Catholics.
