Georg Pencz

c. 1500-1550 Germany/Northern Renaissance


Brief Biography-Georg Pencz was from the region of Franconia, Germany. He worked in the atelier of Albrecht Dürer in Nuremberg from 1523. He had the misfortune of being exiled from Nuremberg with Barthel and Hans Beham for being Protestants; however, eventually, he was pardoned.
Dürer influenced his work, and after visits to Italy, Italian art inspired him. In 1538, he finished a commission by King Sigismund I of Poland to complete work by Dürer on an altarpiece in the Wawel Cathedral in Kraków; Albrecht Dürer died the year before. He died just after being appointed Court Painter by the Duke of Prussia and sadly never took up the position.
