Austrian, 15th century, male.

Active in Salzburg fromc.1440 to 1460.

Painter.

Conrad Laib was also known by the name of Pfenning, after an inscription on a panel of the Crucifixion which is in the museum in Vienna. He painted in the realist style, highlighting the subtleties of materials, in, for example, the heavy folds of woollen fabric, the glistening of gold braid and the reflection of polished armour.
