Kraft, Adam

 

(also A. Krafft). Born circa 1460 in Nuremberg (?); died 1508 or 1509 in Schwabach, Bavaria. German sculptor.

Kraft’s art, which represents the transitional phase between Gothic and Renaissance, is distinguished by emotional restraint of the figures, rhythmical narration, plastic forms, and balanced compositon. Genre elements are sometimes encountered in his works. His works, which are all in limestone and are found in Nuremberg, include a tabernacle with portrait figures of Kraft and two of his apprentices (1493–96, Church of St. Lorenz), the relief The Weigher, and seven reliefs of the Stations of the Cross for St. John’s Cemetery (1505[?]-08, now in the Germanic Museum).
