Clauss Chess: toymaker

I still don’t entirely understand the history and origin of this image being as my German is non-existent and Google translator is only so good. Do love the perspective of the room though it’s a pity that Clauss doesn’t appear to have room to stand up without hitting his head on those beautifully rendered ceiling beams.

Clauss Chess, toymaker. 1558.
