Lucas Moser (c 1390–c 1434), was a German Late-Gothic
painter. He was born in Ulm, and is part of the early Ulm School of
artists such as Hans Multscher. Not much is known about his life.
Moser's name is known only through an inscription on the frame of
the altarpiece above the altar of St. Mary Magdalene parish church
in Tiefenbronn, near Pforzheim.
This altarpiece is a significant work which represents a shift from
the International Gothic to a more natural Realism style and technique,
similar to Early Netherlandish painting. It is as important to the art
of German-speaking lands as van Eyck's Ghent Altarpiece is to that of
the Netherlands. Both were completed in 1432.
From October of 1916 through January of 1917, Rudolf Steiner gave a series
of nine lectures known as the Art Course. These lectures were given
the title of:
The History of Art.
