Bernhard Strigel (c. 1461 – 1528) was a German portrait and historical painter
of the Swabian school, the most important of a family of artists established at
Memmingen. He was born at Memmingen and was probably a pupil of Zeitblom at Ulm.
He stood in high favor with the Emperor Maximilian I, in whose service he
repeatedly journeyed to Augsburg, Innsbruck, and Vienna.
His religious paintings, which include four altar wings with scenes from the
"Life of the Virgin," in the Berlin Gallery, and 10 paintings illustrating the
"Genealogy of Christ," in the Germanic Museum, Nuremberg, are historically
interesting, but of less artistic value than his portraits, which, though
detailed, are ably handled and luminous in color. Notable examples are those of
Conrad Rehlinger, lord of Hainhofen (1517), Pinakhothek, Munich; "Councilor
Cuspinian and Family," (1520), Berlin Museum; "Count John of Montfort," at
Donaueschingen; "An Unknown Lady," Metropolitan Museum, New York; and portraits
of Emperor Maximilian in the Strassburg, Munich, and Vienna galleries.
