Master of St. Severin


Painting

Passion series, scene: Christ on the Mount of Olives

The Master of St. Severin was an Gothic painter working in Cologne the Middle Ages to about 1520 . Because his real name is unknown, it is named after a cycle of 20 pictures with scenes from the legend of Severin which today is located in Cologne's Severin Church.

Style
With the Master of the Aachen altar and the Master of the (Cologne) Ursula legend he is a representative of the late period of the Cologne Gothic and stands at the threshold of the new painting. He was one of the last major representative of the late medieval painter who held the region until the second decade of the 16th century to the late Gothic traditions of the so-called Cologne school of painting.
