22 -- Part 2: Sixteenth-Century Art in Northern Europe and
Tilman Riemenschneider was a master in 1485 and had the largest workshop in Wurzburg, with specialists in both wood and stone sculpture.
In 1501, Riemenschneider signed a contract with the church of St. James, where a relic said to be a drop of Jesus's blood was preserved.
In 1499, Erhart Harschner began work on the Gothic frame and was paid 50 florins for his work.
The figures and scenes were provided by Riemenschneider.
He was paid 60 florins for the sculpture, which gave us a sense of the relative value patrons placed on their contributions.
Unlike Leonardo da Vinci, the same moment was chosen.
Judas is at the center stage and Jesus is at the left.
The people are sitting around a table.
The work of two very different German artists has different styles.
From the first decades of the sixteenth century, his figures have large heads and prominent features.
The hands and feet are moving.
The use of Albrecht Durer is also very realistic.
His assistants and apprentices studied the world to create realistic replicas from drawings, sentations of nature and mathematical models.
The volu portions of the altarpiece are used to standardize depictions of the human figure.
The Last Supper is set in a real bishop of Mainz and contains actual benches for the figures.
A man of many talents in the back wall are glazed with bull's-eye glass so that natural light shines in from two directions to illuminate as a painter.
He is best known for his paintings of the scene, which can be changed by the weather and shutters at the time of day.
The Isenheim Altarpiece was carved earlier.
The altarpiece is impressive in its size and complexity.
One set of fixed wings, two sets of fixed wings, and one set of panels to cover the predella were painted by the Grunewald.
The altarpiece needed more skillful carvers and more time for tions depending on the church calendar.
This new look was not cost-saving, it was a matter of Aesthetics, carved wooden shrine complemented one another, the not cost-saving.
During the Peasants' War, when the altarpiece was closed, view career ended because of a gruesome image of the Crucifixion.
Before the advent of modern medicine, prayer was a four source of solace and relief to the ill.
The author of the detailed descriptions of the Crucifixion carved an altar in Germany in 1492.
The hospital specialized in the care of Jesus was covered with gashes from his beating and pierced patients with skin diseases, according to a piece for the abbey of St. Anthony in Isenheim near Col. His ashen and St. Anthony's Fire were caused by eating rye and other body parts, and he had an open mouth and blue lips.
Death is included in the shrine.
He looks like he's already decaying, an effect of SS.
Three tiny enhanced by the colors of putrescent green, yellow, and men--all described by St.
The donor, Jean d'Orliac, had two colors of death spread through his flesh.
The flesh fell in anguish to her knees, but her clasped hands with out of the sculpted figures was painted in realistic colors, but stretched fingers seemed to echo Jesus's fingers, cramped in most of the altarpiece.
The Baptist Grunewald painted wooden shutters to cover the shrine and the lamb, holding a cross and bleeding from its breast.
St. Anthony Enthroned.
The center panel is 9'91/2'' x 10'9'' (2.97 x 3.28 m), predella is 2'51/2'' x 11'2'.
Christ is the Lamb of God.
The range of Jesus's friends in the heavenly realm may have emphasized the body for burial, an activity that must have been carried out by the Church.
The patients must have hoped for miraculous recovery and special festivals of St. Anthony, so the sculpture was reserved for them.
The opening show to the left of the meeting of St. Anthony tic color was filled with visions of divine rapture and orgias.
The scenes of St. Anthony and St. Paul are brilliantly illuminated in part by phosphores that are attacked by horrible demons, perhaps inspired by the cent auras and haloes.
The technical virtuosity of Grunewald's on Schongauer's well-known print of the same subject painting is enough to inspire euphoria.
The central panels show the wilderness realm and the monastic life in one place.
The North Grunewald depicts plants used in the hospital's European visionary tradition, and the new mother adores therapy.
St. Anthony is a portrait of the future as queen of heaven, while St. Paul is a portrait of the future as Christ Child.

He built his artistic fame as a painter and graphic artist.
Durer traveled in 1490 to extend his education.
He went to Switzerland to meet Martin Schongauer, but arrived after the master's death.
Durer moved from Basel to Strasbourg by the year 1494.
