STOSS, Veit
(b. ca. 1438, Horb, d. 1533, Nürnberg)

Winged Altarpiece

1523
Wood
Cathedral, Bamberg

The altarpiece of the Carmelites waas Stoss's Last work. It affirms once again his mastery and the force of his personal genius, which had a temendous impact on many sculptors, whether pupils or followers, such as Master Paul active at Lőcse (Levoca in Slovakia).
