Daniel Mauch (1477–1540) is one of the leading sculptors to work during the transition from the late Middle Ages to the early Modern era. Works such as the Bieselbach Altar (1510), the Sebastian Altar in Geisling (circa 1520), and the Berselius Madonna in Liège (1530s) are regarded as outstanding monuments to the art of German woodcarving. The artist responded to the growing market for secular art and the interests of private collectors with his delicate statuettes of nudes. Mauch worked in the imperial town of Ulm for almost three decades. In 1529, just before the Reformation, he emigrated to the Catholic city of Liège, where his success carried on until his death.

Despite his importance, Mauch has only recently attracted greater scholarly interest. This publication sheds light on his entire oeuvre—from the early works in Ulm to the end of his career in Liège. It is a profound assessment of the last notable representative of the important and productive tradition of Ulm sculptors.
