Artist's Description

From the Lübeck 2014 Series -

St. Mary’s Church, Lübeck, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany

St. Mary’s is the church of the Council of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. The brick basilica serves as a model for the Gothic brick style of churches in the Baltic region. For the first time, the Gothic cathedral style of France was adapted to the local brick.

Numerous works of arts are to be found in St. Mary’s interior: The Cross of Triumph by Gerhard Marcks in the high choir above the Swarte Altar from 1495 is as much at home here as the largest mechanical organ in the world. The well-known church musician and composer Dietrich Buxtehude was St. Mary’s organist and work master from 1667 to 1707.
