Martin Schongauer Biography

The family name Schongauer probably derives from the town of Schongau, although from 1329 the family is documented in Augsburg, where they were members of the gentry. Caspar Schongauer, a well-known goldsmith, moved from Augsburg to Colmar in 1445. He had 5 sons, three of them became gold- and silversmiths, and two, Martin and Ludwig, engravers and painters.
