MASTER ARNT of Kalkar
(active 1490-1492 in Kalkar and Zwolle)
Netherlandish wood-carver. Master Arnt's activity in Kalkar is first recorded in 1460. He was one of the most important and original Lower Rhine sculptors from before 1500. He developed a personal style for the local market, and has an impressive oeuvre of more than 20 works. Four sculptures by him were formerly grouped under the name 'Master of the Kalkar Altar of St George' after the altar of St George in the church of St Nicholas in Kalkar.
