Matthias Grünewald (c.1470 – August 31, 1528), is a highly regarded figure from the German Renaissance. He painted primarily religious works, especially somber and awe-filled crucifixion scenes.
His real name was Mathis Gothart Neithart. A 17th-century writer, Joachim von Sandrart, mistakenly identified him by the name Grünewald; his real name was not discovered till the 1920s. He was born in Würzburg in the 1470s.
