Design for Lower Stages of the Tower of Ulm Cathedral
Probably by Moritz Ensinger (about 1430-93)
Ink on vellum
Width 68 cm x 181cm
Museum no. 3547
Ensinger was the master mason in charge of the cathedral works and this drawing will have been made in order to show how work should proceed. In fact the tower was not completed until the late 19th century and a slightly later drawing formed the basis of its design.
