Martin Schongauer

Alsatian painter and engraver

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
A leading figure in late medieval art north of the Alps; his influence spread outside of the Rhine Valley. He revitalized German painting through his clever assimilation of Netherlandish art and a sense of local tradition. He is noted for his refined draftsmanship and combined monumentality and delicacy.
