August 1516, spent his entire artistic career in the small Dutch town of Hertogenbosch, from which he derived his name.

Grünewald’s dark vision

The final flowering of the Gothic came relatively late, in the work of the German artist, Matthias Grünewald (his real name was Mathis Neithart, otherwise Gothart, 1470/80-1528). He was possibly an exact contemporary of Dürer, but while Dürer was deeply influenced by the Renaissance, Grünewald ignored it in his choice of subject matter and style. Much of his work has not survived to this day, but even from the small  [ Read More ]

Matthias Grünewald

Timeline: Late Gothic Painting Matthias Grünewald, c.1475-1528, whose real name was Mathis Gothart, called Nithart or Neithardt, was a major figure in a generation of great northern German Renaissance painters that also included Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, and Albrecht Altdorfer. Grünewald remained relatively unknown until the 20th century; only about 13 of his paintings and some drawings survive. His present worldwide reputation, however, is based chiefly on his greatest masterpiece,  [ Read More ]

The oldest extant picture by Cranach is the Rest of the Virgin during the Flight into Egypt, of 1504. The painting already shows remarkable skill and grace, and the pine forest in the background shows a painter familiar with the mountain scenery of Thuringia. There is more forest gloom in landscapes of a later time. Following the huge international success of Dürer’s prints, other German artists, much more than Italian  [ Read More ]

About Rembrandt Etchings

Many people are surprised to learn that Rembrandt’s etchings, not his paintings, were responsible for the international reputation he enjoyed during his lifetime. When in 1660 the great Italian painter Guercino remarked, “I frankly consider him to be a great virtuoso,” he was referring to the Dutchman’s prints. The extraordinarily high regard Rembrandt’s contemporaries had for his etchings was understandable, for in less than four decades he had pushed the  [ Read More ]
