Schwenke Sculptors & Stonemasons from Pirna, Sachen, Germany

Journal by SandyW


Need help with my research regarding 3 Schwenke Sculptors from Pirna, Sachsen(Saxony), Germany.

Michael Schwenke, his son Hans and his brother David were Sculptors and Stonemasons from Pirna. I am looking for information regarding the names of their wives, children, parents and so forth.

Below is the information I have so far;

Born May 1565 in Pirna and died 10 July 1610 in Pirna.

His principal works were; the alter and pulpit at the parish church in Lauenstein(1594-1602) and the alter in the Liebfraukirche, Pirna(1610-1614). Trained as Sculptor from 1579 to 1584 in Pirna. He was a student of Christiaan Kramer.

HANS SCHWENKE:(son of Michael Schwenke)
Born Dec 1589 in Pirna and died August 1634 in Pirna.

DAVID SCHWENKE:(brother of Michael Schwenke)
Born 29 Sep 1575 in Pirna and died 5 Nov 1620 in Pirna.

Appreciate any help!
