Stefan Lochner

(born 1400, Meersburg am Bodensee, Bishopric of Constancedied 1451, Cologne) German painter. Nothing is known of his early life, but he may have studied in the Netherlands before settling in Cologne 1430, for Flemish influence is evident in his attention to minute details. Jan van Eyck's influence is seen in The Adoration of the Magi, his altarpiece for Cologne's great cathedral, but Lochner adds his own naturalistic observation and masterly sense of colour and design. Known for his highly mystical religious paintings, he is considered the greatest representative of the school of Cologne.
