Life of ADAM KRAFT


 Advertisements

 
  German sculptor, active in Nuremberg. He was a virtuoso stone carver and his most celebrated work, the tabernacle in St Lawrence, Nuremberg (1493-96). is a gigantic stone imitation (c.18 m high) of a subtle piece of goldsmith s work. The richly decorated structure houses a multitude of human figures, animals, amphibia, etc. One of the supporting figures at the base is supposed to be a selfportrait of Kraft. Other examples of his work can be seen in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg.
