After The Master of the Housebook (German, active about 1470–1500) This design for a stained-glass quatrefoil (four-lobed form) portrays scenes of courtly love. At left, a couple on horseback are shown hunting with a falcon. At right, a maiden, accompanied by an eager fool, promenade through a forest. Below, a reclining couple enjoy an amorous dalliance beside a trough. The top lobe features a castle above a rocky landscape.

The empty field in the center of the sheet is a placeholder for a coat of arms and suggests that the stained glass could have been made for a royal residence or official building. This drawing is likely a simplified copy by an artist in the workshop of the Master of the Housebook. It was intended as a model for a glass painter. Several steps and a variety of craftspeople were involved in making stained glass. After the artist drew the overall composition, a glass painter painted the design onto pieces of clear and colored glass. In order to allow light to penetrate through the painted design, the glass painter stippled, scratched, and scrubbed away some of the paint before the glass was stained and set into a lead framework.
