Der Schalcksnarr the jester the fool COLOR FREE IMAGE: Heinrich Vogtherr the Younger (1513 - 1568), Der Schalcksnarr, the jester, woodcut (hissai), Augsburg around 1540, the Castle Gotha Museum
About his youth nothing is known. His father, Henry Vogt Lord (the elder) was a painter, draftsman, engraver, etcher, printer, publisher, author, song writer and an ophthalmologist. In 1525 the young Mr. Vogt came with his father to Strasbourg , and was probably trained by this artistically and technically. As an assistant he was at his side for several years and worked with 1537/1538 to its successful "art book". About 1540 he settled as a painter and engraver in Augsburg down,the birthplace of his wife Sybilla Steinmaier.
This connection came from seven sons and five daughters. Together with Hans the Younger Burgkmair he worked at the "Augsburg Book of Genealogy", and the engraved title of this work (the emblem of the city of Augsburg) comes from him. Like other Augsburg artists, he was also in the service of the Fugger and worked on behalf of monumental frescoes that adorn many buildings were in Augsburg.
