Strigel, Bernhard

Bernhard Strigel was a German portrait and historical painter at the transition from late Gothic to Early Northern Renaissance Art.

The son of the sculptor Ivo Strigel, Bernhard Strigel was first under the influence of the artist Bartholomew Zeitblom in Ulm, and later, he developed under Dutch influence in Mindelheimer and Salem.

He stood in high favor with the emperor and Maximilian I chose Bernhard Strigel as the court painter and not the more important Albrecht Durer or the Augsburg Painters Burgk Maier and Breu, who also knew the Emperor. Strigel portraiture to this day has a special place in the history of art, he created several portraits that have been copied repeatedly.

His religious paintings, which include four altar wings with scenes from the Life of the Virgin, and 10 paintings illustrating the Genealogy of Christ, are historically interesting, but not as artistic as his portraits, which, are detailed and luminous in color.

Some works of Bernhard Strigel are still in their original places, but many were destroyed by the Reformation. The portrait of Maximilian I with insignia from the Maximilianeum in Innsbruck was discovered in 1965 in a private collection owned by the Vorarlberg artist and restorer Konrad Honold.
