Günther, Ignaz

Günther, Ignaz ĭg´näts gün´tər [key], 1725–75, German sculptor. Günther produced numerous wood carvings that reveal mannerist and rococo influences. His elegant figures are elongated to the point of distortion, and the wood is brightly painted, as in his works for the church at Rott-am-Inn in Bavaria.
