Brief Biography-Michael Pacher was born in Tyrol, c. 1435. Pacher was a painter and wood-carver of prominence who Rogier van der Weyden strongly influenced. His skilful use of perspective came from Mantegna and nearby Paduan art. His creations had much influence on his contemporaries. Pacher's most noted work was the high Altar at St. Wolfgang in Salzkammergut, finished in 1481. There are works by him also in Munich, Vienna and Cologne.
