H. Manske, Der Meister von Osnabrück: Osnabrücker Plastik um 1500, Osnabrück, 1978
The present Saint Roch relates to the work of the Master of Osnabrück, a Notname referring to a leading sculptor, or several, active in and around the Westphalian city during the early 16th century. The physiognomy and drapery are directly comparable to a version of the same subject by the so-called Hauptmeister (Manske, no. 33, fig. 20). Comparable is also the group of Apostles attributed to his workshop in the Diözesanmuseum, Osnabrück (Manske, no. 92, figs. 7-10). The imagination of the carver responsible for the present figure is shown particularly in the charming, leonine dog accompanying the Saint.
