Lucas Cranach the Elder Paintings

Lucas Cranach the Elder (October 4, 1472 – October 16, 1553), was a German Renaissance printmaker and painter. He was a court artist for the Electors of Saxony and specialized in portraiture. Many of Cranach’s paintings were of religious subjects, particularly of the Lutheran faith. He was a huge supporter of Protestant leaders and was a personal friend to Martin Luther. His workshop was responsible for the many portraits of Martin Luther, his wife, and other notable Reformers. His sons, Hans and Lucas the Younger, continued their father’s artistic legacy after his death.
