ARTZILA

A term coined in 1892 by Theodor von Frimmel to describe artists working c.1500-50 in the Danube region around Regensburg, Passau, and Linz. The most prominent figures were the prominence of landscape, which was usually mountainous and covered in thick forests, and the depiction of the human figure in a manner which often involved contorted poses and expressive drapery.
