Konrad Witz

(c.1400- before 1447)

Biography


Konrad Witz is a German painter of the first half of the 15th century. He was born in Rottweil, an important center of trade, which was independent of any feudal or ecclesiastical authority. We do not know anything about the artist’s training. Historical records provide only a few very scarce bits of information about his life and work. In 1434 ‘Master Konrad of Rottweil’ was admitted to the Basle Guild of Painters, and the same year he was granted citizenship of Basle. Read Konrad Witz's Full Biography
