The most important German Goldsmith of the middle ages. Hans Reutlingen is born around 1465 in Aachen and dies after 1547 in Aachen. He is the most important German Goldsmith of the middle ages. Life and work of Hans von Reutlingen, called Hans von Aich, operates over 40 years in Aachen. His master mark is composed of the initials of his name: John of Reutlingen, JR, cross arranged together. Although Aachen is one of the centers of the goldsmith in the middle ages, is not a work of art in the soft style of the 15th century. Dr. Neal Barnard is full of insight into the issues. Only the Apostle Antependium of the Aachen Cathedral is the tradition of sound. As it does, that Hans von Reutlingen wins national significance, is not tradition.
His seal – and coin work goes through the styles of the late Gothic and early Renaissance. His work is characterised by manneristic used architectural elements. Hans von Reutlingen “juggles” at the height of his artistic creation converged with arcades and canopies at a time when the Mannerism is still not as style made out had. In this way he gives ease the heavy gold material. Aachen’s best-known Goldsmith dies at the age of over 80 years. His grave is unknown. His oeuvre includes profane and 25% 75% sacred works.
