German family of artists. Its main representative, (1) Gumpolt Giltlinger I, from Augsburg, was a painter of panels and stained-glass windows. His son Gumpolt Giltlinger II (fl 1520; d 1547) was the father of Christoph Giltlinger I (fl 1554–96), who was trained by Christoph Amberger and was the grandfather of Christoph Giltlinger II (fl 1591–1608). Florian Giltlinger (c. 1490–1547) and his son Andreas Giltlinger (fl 1563; d after 1580) were of greater significance, as painter and glass painter respectively, than the descendants of Gumpolt Giltlinger I, but their relationship to them has not been established.
