Master of Saint Veronica

active early 15th century

The Master of Saint Veronica worked in Cologne in the early years of the 15th century. Nothing is known of his life and he is named from a painting showing Saint Veronica with the Sudarium from the church of St Severin in Cologne (now in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich). Other paintings can be related to the panel in Munich, including this simplified variant, the 'Saint Veronica with the Sudarium' in the National Gallery, which also comes from a church in Cologne.

The style of the artist's work is close to that of Stephan Lochner, who also worked in Cologne.
