The Isenheim Altar: Suffering and Salvation in the Art of Grunewald

The Isenheim Altar: Suffering and Salvation in the

Grunewald is generally regarded as the greatest painter of the German Renaissance, and his masterpiece, "The Isenheim Altar" in Colmar, as one of the great works of western art. Painted for the Order of Saint Anthony -- a monastic fraternity that cared for the sick and suffering humanity of the time -- Richter explains how the various panels of the altarpiece, and in particular the great central panels of Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection, need to be seen as a unity that provoked in the observer a profound experience of the meaning of earthly suffering and the power of healing transformation. In an age when illness and disease were still seen as a result of 'the sickness of sin' that had befallen humanity, such a picture has a spiritual therapeutic effect on those exposed to it and gave them an inner strength to endure and triumph over their often painful and difficult destinies.

Wetterleuchten über Isenheim: Ein Grünewald-Roman (German Edition)

Wetterleuchten über Isenheim: Ein Grünewald-Roman (German

Im Mittelpunkt dieses historischen Romans steht der Maler Mathis Neithart, der unter dem Namen Matthias Grünewald bekannt wurde. Neben Albrecht Dürer war er der expressivste deutsche Maler an der Wende von der Spätgotik zur Renaissance. Sein großes Hauptwerk - der Isenheimer Altar - entstand 1512-1516 im elsässischen Antoniterkloster, wo am „Antoniusfeuer“ Erkrankte gepflegt wurden.Die Autorin zeichnet anschaulich und mit Detailkenntnis ein genaues Bild jener Zeit des gesellschaftlichen Umbruchs der Bauernkriege und Reformation. Der Leser taucht gewissermaßen ein in das Leben des berühmten Künstlers und nimmt an seinem Schaffen teil. Einst Erzbischöflicher Hofmaler in Mainz, lebte Grünewald an seinem Lebensende - nach erniedrigenden Bittgängen - sozial entwurzelt in Halle. Geblieben aber sind seine berühmten Werke.LESEPROBE:Im Kaminzimmer hat der Qualm einen beißenden Geruch hinterlassen, aber es lässt sich atmen. Meister Mathis breitet die Pläne auf einem Tisch aus und weist Meister Baltz an, die einzelnen Mauerteile und Winkel nachzumessen. Es geht lakonisch zu. Zahlen werden angesagt, verglichen, bestätigt. Weiter hinein in den verrußten Abzug muss der Geselle kriechen. Bisher decken sich alle Angaben.Plötzlich aber gibt es eine Abweichung. Meister Mathis...

The Devil at Isenheim: Reflections of Popular Belief in Grünewald's Altarpiece (The Discovery Series)

The Devil at Isenheim: Reflections of Popular Belief

Matthias Grünwald's world-famous Isenheim Altarpiece ranks among the most powerful expressionistic works of the Northern Renaissance. Characterized by great emotional force, exquisite handling of color and brilliantly interwoven subtleties of Christian iconography, the multi-paneled altarpiece has remained the object of intense scholarly interest and the main attraction of the Musée d'Unterlinden in Colmar, France.Ruth Mellinkoff offers an original analysis of the altarpiece, uncovering the late medieval popular beliefs that underlie its unusual visual content. She places its rich imagery within a tradition of Christian art, and stunningly, discovers Lucifer among the angels observing the Nativity.

The Isenheim Altarpiece: God's Medicine and the Painter's

Andrée Hayum approaches Matthias Grünewald's Isenheim Altarpiece, now at the Musée d'Unterlinden in Colmar, as a structural and iconographic entity and restores it to its broader cultural context in the early sixteenth century. She interprets the altarpiece in terms of its hospital context, then explores how this polyptych functions as a system of communication, in relation to contemporary sermons and in response to an emerging print culture. The meaning and motivation behind the direct visual appeal of the Isenheim panels are considered within the liturgy and the sacramental economy.
