HANS BURGKMAIR (German / 1473-c.1531)

Hans Burgkmair the Elder (to distinguish him from his son Hans Burgkmair the Younger, born around 1500) was born and died in Augsburg. He was the pupil of Martin Schongauer; his own father, Thomas Burgkmair, was also an artist. Like Dürer, Hans Burgkmair travelled in Italy, and tried to introduce an Italian Renaissance aesthetic into German art.
