1460 ca1490-15091509, Jan
a German stone sculptor and master builder of the late Gothic period, based in Nuremberg and with a documented career there from 1490. His masterpiece is considered to be the 18.7 meter tall (61 feet tall) tabernacle, in the Saint Lorenz church of Nuremberg. The tabernacle, that has the shape of a gothic tower reaching into the church's vault, is made up of tracery interspersed with figural scenes from Christ's Passion and was commissioned in 1493 by Hans Imhoff, a patrician from Nuremberg. The contract for the commission was preserved and stipulates details about the execution and finish of the work.
