KRUG, Hans I
(b. ?, d. 1519, Nürnberg)


German goldsmith, founder of a family of artists. Hans Krug I was one of the leading goldsmiths and diecutters in Nuremberg in the late 15th century and early 16th. He and his wife Ursula had three sons, Hans Krug II (d 1529), who became a master in 1513, Ludwig Krug and Erasmus Krug. The three brothers were trained by their father, and the family workshop became the most important in Nuremberg.
