Abstract

Very little is known about the life of Heinrich Vogtherr the Younger (1513-1568), except for the fact that his father was an artist who studied under Hans Burgkmair; he was once associated with the artist Bruegel; and he entered the Augsburg painters’ guild in 1541. Images of jesters and fools were common subjects and here is Vogtherr’s most striking – and colourful – depiction of a fool, ‘cocking a snoot’ at the authorities.
