Torment of Job

ca. 1525, Artist: I. P. Meister



Torment of Job

Art historians have assigned the geographically imprecise term “Danube School” to a number of highly individual artists active in southern Germany, Austria and Bohemia, whose works exhibit a completely new sensitivity to nature. Late-Gothic elements blend with a radically new depiction of bodies and space. For the first time the landscape becomes an integral part of the composition or is even made a subject of its own.
