Life of VEIT STOSS


 Advertisements

 
  German Gothic sculptor, born in Swabia, and trained in art in Nuremberg. Stoss executed the spectacular high altar for Saint Mary s Church in Krakw, Poland, between 1477 and 1489, and the sculptured red marble tomb of King Casimir IV of Poland, in the cathedral of Krakw in 1492.
  In 1499 he carved three stone reliefs, based on the life of Christ, in the Church of Saint Sebaldus in Nuremberg. His best-known sculpture is the Annunciation (1518) in the Church of Saint Lorenz, Nuremberg, carved in wood on a heroic scale and suspended from the vault.
  The sculptures of Stoss are renowned for their dramatic realism. Although Gothic in style, they also contain Renaissance elements.
