This board includes images from many New Testament stories. See below for the reason it is named Unknown Masters, and remember the artisans who inspired it.
In many of the artwork mosaics I create, it is the reds and golds that first jump to my eye. In Unknown Masters the greens and the blues are especially pretty. Different from the Rembrandt board, in Unknown Masters the darks are instead assigned to images related to the Nativity, and the brights here serve the Passion and Crucifixion. It gives the viewer a different outlook on the faith.
While many masterpieces of early Christian mosaics, frescoes, and paintings were signed and dated, many were not. Where normally the name of the artist and the date of creation of the work is given, instead a viewer will find that the attribution of these works is referred to as “Master of the xxxx Altarpiece” or “Italian Unknown Master xxxx” or something like that. I find it quite respectful and appreciate the designation ‘Master’ for these anonymous artists. The Unknown Masters board is named in honor of those unknown artists and their works of art that were designed and created without ever having a name signed to claim credit for their beauty and creativity.
