Danube School

(redirected from Danubian School)

Danube School

 

a movement in painting and graphic art that arose in southern Germany and Austria in the first half of the 16th century. The early works of L. Cranach, the works of A. Altdorfer and W. Huber, as well as a number of works of H. Lautensack, A. Hirschvogel, and J. Breu, are representative of the Danube school of art. The works of this school, representing a complete break with medieval artistic traditions, are characterized by freedom of imagination, intensity of feeling, romantic and at times fantastic images, an interest in nature (especially river and forest landscapes) and in space and light, a dynamic and impetuous manner, expressiveness of drawing, and intensity of color.
