Lucas Cranach the Elder

£34.99

Product description

Pegasus Library Series, produced as part of a limited print run on 2007 by Prestel. An in-depth exploration of the life and art of the founder of Lutheran painting, illustrated extensively with colour plates.

Lucas Cranach the Elder (c.1472 – 1553) was a German Renaissance painter and print maker in woodcut and engraving. He was court painter to the Electors of Saxony for most of his career, and is known for his portraits, both of German princes and those of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation, whose cause he embraced with enthusiasm, becoming a close friend of Martin Luther. He also painted religious subjects, first in the Catholic tradition, and later trying to find new ways of conveying Lutheran religious concerns in art. He continued throughout his career to paint nude subjects drawn from mythology and religion. He had a large workshop and many works exist in different versions; his son Lucas Cranach the Younger, and others, continued to create versions of his father's works for decades after his death. Lucas Cranach the Elder has been considered the most successful German artist of his time.

In excellent condition throughout.
