Johann Balthasar Neumann (About this sound listen (help info); January 27, 1687 - August 19, 1753), also known as Balthasar Neumann, was an ethnic German military artillery engineer and architect who developed a refined brand of Baroque architecture, fusing Austrian, Bohemian, Italian, and French elements to design some of the most impressive buildings of the period, including the W rzburg Residence and the Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. The W rzburg Residence is considered one of the most beautiful and well proportioned palace in Europe and the Basilica of the Fourteen Holy Helpers is considered by some as the crowning work of the period. Neumann was an architect of Saint Paulin Church in Trier, designing most of the internal elements. His final work is the Church of the Visitation of Mary, a masterpiece of the Baroque style located near Eltmann am Main.
