KULMBACH, or CULMBACH, Hans von (properly Hans Süss) (c.l485-1522). A German painter and engraver, born at Kulmbach, in Franconia. He was a pupil of Dürer, and then of Jacopo de' Barbari. His masterpiece is the “Coronation of the Virgin,” in the Church of Sankt Sebald at Nuremberg. Other works by him are treatments of Saint Peter and Saint Paul (the Uffizi, Florence) and of Saint Catharine (at Saint Mary's Church, Cracow). He also painted portraits. Kulmbach stands among the first of Dürer's pupils.
