This paper presents stone sculptures of an sculptor from Varazdin, Ivan Jakob Altenbach. His only documented work leads us to stone sculptures whose specific drape form, face visage and iconographic topics can easily be recognized as this sculptor’s technique. Altenbach’s achievements in wood, but also in stone, are considered to be forerunner of baroque. Art historians, in the first place Doris Baričević, usually add stone sculptures when they talk about entire art work of this sculptor. In that way they enrich his oeuvre and they mention his name more often.
