Hans Lützelburger (häns lü´tsəlbŏŏrgər), d. 1526, German wood engraver, assumed to be the same man as Hans Franck, active from c.1516. He worked in Augsburg and Basel and probably in Mainz. His remarkable technical abilities are evident in his wood engravings after Holbein the Younger's Dance of Death and in a curious print, Peasants Fighting with Naked Men.
