PACHER, Friedrich
(active 1470-80 in Tyrol)

Biography

Austrian painter. Although he may initially have assisted Michael Pacher in his workshop in Bruneck, their kinship remains unproven. He was entrusted with parochial and judicial duties in Bruneck, which indicates his own successful career.

A considerable oeuvre has been attributed to him by stylistic comparisons with his only signed work, the Baptism (1483, Frauenkirche, Munich).
