Stefan Lochner

The sumptuous paintings of Stefan Lochner (d. Cologne 1451) are among the most familiar yet least understood images of the late Middle Ages. This book explores Lochner's oeuvre from various vantage points. Tracing current conceptions of the artist back to the earliest recorded testimonies, it first reviews Lochner's changing critical fortunes. A perceptual account of Lochner's major paintings and illuminated manuscripts follows, clarifying the artist's passion for the nature of representation and the different ways in which he engages the viewer. In addition, study of Lochner's works by means of infrared reflectography reveals a draftsman of the first order: his complex underdrawings foreshadow Martin Schongauer's graphic style of forty years later. The first monograph on Stefan Lochner since 1938, this book as illustrated with 69 color plates and 225 black-and-white reproductions; it includes a bibliography and index.
