Resurrection of Jesus by Matthias Grünewald, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Image in higher resolution (712 × 1185 pixel, file size: 133 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg)

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.
He served as court painter and hydraulic engineer to two successive archbishops of Mainz, Uriel von Gemmingen and Albrecht von Brandenburg, in the German Rhineland from about 1510 to 1525. He left this post apparently because of Lutheran sympathies. Grünewald died in Halle in 1528.
