(b Colmar; fl c. 1430–84). German painter. His work, with that of hans Hirtz, jost Haller and the master of the Stauffenberg altar, occupies an essential place in mid-15th-century Alsatian art and testifies to the influence of Netherlandish painting in the upper Rhine. He had an exceptionally long career, being active at the same time as konrad Witz, master e.s. (see under Monogrammists) and the young Martin Schongauer (see Schongauer, (1)); although Schongauer must have studied Isenmann's work, there is nothing to prove that he was trained by him. Isenmann worked in his native city, Colmar, but only a few works survive of an undoubtedly prolific output.
