The Rest of the Flight into Egypt

Nativity Scene

Konrad von Soest was a 15th century Gothic German painter known for his westfälischen or “soft style” of painting. It is thought that he was born around 1370 and died around 1422. Few details of his life are known, except that he was born in Dortmund.


The Crucifixion

His paintings were extremely influential in the development of other 15th century German artists style, and is considered the lone master of westfälischen today.





Von Soest’s only known signed painting is the many paneled piece that hangs in the Niederwildungen Parish Church, dated around 1404. There are other works attributed to him that are housed in churches in both Dortmund and Soest. Because so little is known about this great master and what he could have created, the possibility for one of his nearly 600 year old paintings to surface somewhere is great.
