Historical Artist - Wolfgang Huber (1485 - 1553)

Wolf Huber came from a family of artists and probably was an apprentice in his native city of Feldkirch, Austria. He made contact with Albrecht Altdorfer by 1510 and was also influenced by Durer, Mantegna, and Bellini. Huber set up a workshop in Passau, Germany and was appointed court painter to the Bishop of Passau. He created an altarpiece in Feldkirch in 1521. Eight years later, Huber became the architect for the local count, Graf Nicoluas of Salm and several years later was appointed Passau’s official architect. In addition to painting and architecture, Huber also created woodcuts and landscape drawings.
