The Master of Cologne is regarded as the
most important painter in Cologne before Stefan Lochner who was
influenced by him. His work is distinguished by soft contours and
subtle color combinations.
Also known as the Master of Saint Veronica,
he worked in the International style in Germany between 1395 and 1415.
Known primarily for his work in panel painting, his name derives from
a painting of Saint Veronica in Munich. Brilliant colors, sweet and
tender facial expressions, courtly costumes, and subtle modeling were
key elements of the Master's style. He was one of the most important
painters in Cologne, Germany, a major artistic and ecclesiastical
center during the Middle Ages.
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.
