Hans Friedrich Schorer

(circa 1585 – after 1654, Augsburg)

Hans Friedrich Schorer came from a family of artists in Augsburg and was trained by his father, Hans Schorer the Younger. A practised and productive draughtsman, his first dated works are from 1607/08. He became a master craftsman in Augsburg in 1616 and took over his father’s studio. No paintings in his hand have come down to us, Schorer appearing to have distinguished himself primarily as an author of pattern sheets for artist craftsmen and of finely rendered drawings after works by other artists. His extensive corpus of drawings encompasses religious and mythological themes, landscapes and genre scenes.
