Quick Reference

(fl c. 1410–30). German painter. He is named after a small panel painting of the Garden of Paradise (c. 1410; Frankfurt am Main, Städel. Kstinst. & Städt. Gal.), barely as big as two hands, which captivated people in the Romantic period through its tender, intimate lyricism. It has been linked with a small Annunciation (Winterthur, Samml. Oskar Reinhart), the larger Virgin among the Strawberries (Solothurn, Kstmus.) and several woodcuts. This group of works is also connected to the fragment of a Head of the Virgin (ex-Adelhausen, Dominican convent) and to panels of the Virgin (c. 1430; ex-Tennenbach, monastery; Freiburg im Breisgau, Augustinmus.) and their original reverses of Passion scenes (Karlsruhe, Kunsthalle). It can be inferred that the Master and his workshop worked in Colmar or—more probably—Basle.
