St Christopher Meeting the Devil
St Christopher Meeting the Devil

An early sixteenth-century Danube School painting attributed to the Master of St Christopher Meeting the Devil (named after the subject of the painting) was given to the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2016 in memory of Karl Motesiczky (1904-1943), Marie-Louise’s brother who died in Auschwitz. The work had been on loan to the Fitzwilliam which marked the 200th anniversary of its foundation in 2016.

The painting (a wing from a small altarpiece) stayed in Vienna with Karl Motesiczky when his mother and sister left immediately following the Anschluss in March 1938. He was not permitted to export it. After his arrest in October 1942, the work must have been expropriated, reappearing at auction in Vienna a year later when it was acquired by the Bavarian State Art Collections (Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen), to join another closely related panel already in its possession. The attribution to the ‘Master of St Christopher Meeting the Devil’ was made in 1948. In 1949 Henriette von Motesiczky wrote to the Director-General asking for its return, which the authorities duly granted. The panel remained with her and her daughter, passing to the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust after Marie-Louise’s death in 1996.
