Hans Baldung Grien was one of the most unusual German artists of the Renaissance. In an epoch of profound radical change, he created a varied and independent body of work that continues to fascinate us to this day.
The catalogue accompanies a major regional exhibition at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe and features some 250 exhibits from numerous international collections, including intimate devotional pictures, luminous glass paintings, character portraits, and sensual nudes, among which can also be found the artist’s well-known representations of the Fall of Man (Adam and Eve) and his drastic witch scenes.
With introductions and texts on exhibits aimed at a wider audience, as well as many illustrations, this publication offers a unique overview of the work of this great painter, draftsman and printmaker.
