Hans Baldung, called Grien Biography

Hans Baldung, born in 1484/85 in Gmünd (Schwabia), German painter and engraver, the most gifted of Dürer’s pupils, worked in Nürnberg in 1503-07. Since 1509 till the end of his life he lived in Strasbourg, save for 1512-1516, when he painted the grandiose altar for the local cathedral in Freiburg. In his style, Baldung was influenced by the great masters of the German Renaissance, first of all by Dürer, but also by Cranach the Elder and partly by Grünewald and Altdorfer. Interest to antique mythology, typical for his time, is combined in his art with mystique and pessimism.
