Biography and Works

Master of the Lüneburg Last Judgement
Active ca. 1485


This anonymous German painter worked in the second half of the 15th century. His name derives from a series of frescoes depicting the Last Judgement in the Town Hall at Lüneberg, of around 1495. This series has been used as the basis for the reconstruction of the artist’s oeuvre. Gmelin considered him to be responsible for the Portrait of a young Man in the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid, due to stylistic similarities with the fresco series and also to the work’s provenance. The style of the Master of the Lüneburg Last Judgement is characterised by the hard modelling of the faces and their severe expressions, while his compositions vary between a use of a traditional Gothic model and some more innovative elements including an incipient realism
