as Rival of the Dresdener, and now faces it as a truly dangerous rival in beauty and
genuineness. Also, it shows with substantial agreement in the main content so many
and so significant deviations in the execution of the Dresden picture that the dispute
over the preference of one or the other thereby receives the most fertile points of
attack. Finally, the Dresden copy was almost overgrowing interest and thereby finally
interested a wider audience and this increased interest more and more by the fact that
it has always been more decisive than Rival of the Dresdener, and now as a really
dangerous rival in beauty and authenticity facing it. Also, it shows with substantial

half of the l5. and the first half of the 16th century, living Basel Mayor Jacob Meier,
with his family in a reverent attitude before the, holding a naked child in the arms,
Madonna is depicted; according to which, not infrequently, both pictures are
collectively grouped together under the name of Meier's Madonna, in contrast to so
many other Madonnas that Holbein has drawn and painted, but of which only the
connoisseur knows something. And one wonders whether the larger public would
know more about the Darmstadt image if the connoisseurs had not made it a rival of
the Dresdener. But of course contributes to the greater unfamiliarity with the
