Wilhelm Vöge (1868–1952) was a pioneer of German art history whose scientific work connects profound historical research with a language of description very close to poetry, meant to concentrate his scientific findings in order to get into contact with the creative side of the artistic self. Therefore, it is interesting that a yet unknown sonnet exists about the Cathedral of Strasbourg and some famous artists of the Upper Rhine, among them Grünewald, the master of the Isenheim altar and the Stuppacher Madonna, written by Vöge himself at the back of his personal copy of his Nicolas-Hagnower-monograph (1929/30) that extrapolates Vöges scientific findings poetically.
