Jamnitzer, Wenzel

Wenzel Jamnitzer (vĕn´tsəl yäm´nĬtsər, yä´mĬtsər, gĕm´nĬtsər), 1508–85, leading member of a German family of goldsmiths and engravers. Born in Vienna, he settled in Nuremberg where, as a leading artisan of his day, he executed work for emperors and officials of the court and the church. Examples of his refined workmanship, showing the German adaptation of Italian mannerist forms, are to be seen in the Louvre and in the Victoria and Albert Museum. His gilt bronze nude Spring is in Vienna.
