baroque altars

The Baroque Altar of St Joseph is snuggled against thence pillar next to the Füchsel Baldachin. It was designed around 1700 by Matthias Steinl. The altarpiece (1699) by Anton Schoonjans—an intolerant artist from Antwerp—is painted on copper and shows St Joseph the foster father holding out the divine infant to the beholder for worship. Above the painting is a sculpted depiction of the Annunciation.
