Life of CONRAD MEIT


 Advertisements

 
  German sculptor. In 1506-10 he worked at the court of Frederick the Wise, elector of Saxony, at Wittenberg, collaborating with Cranach. Soon afterwards he moved to the Netherlands, where he worked as court sculptor to the Habsburg rulers for most of his career.
  His work included a number of large monuments, but his most characteristic sculptures are small figures and portraits, most notably sensous free-standing nudes such as the well-known Judith. In these he created a distinctive type of German Renaissance sculpture, combining Italian idealism with northern particularity of detail.
