Cranach the Elder By Maria Peitcheva
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Lucas Cranach the Elder was a German Renaissance painter and printmaker in woodcut and engraving. He was court painter to the Electors of Saxony for most of his career, and is known for his... More > 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. Following the huge international success of Dürer's prints, other German artists, much more than Italian ones, devoted their talents to woodcuts and engravings. This accounts for the comparative unproductiveness as painters of Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein the Younger, and also may explain why Cranach was not especially skilled at handling color, light, and shade.< Less

More > Saxony during the 16th century. From about 1501 to 1504 Cranach lived in Vienna, and his earliest known works date from this period.

Cranach ran a large workshop and worked with great speed, producing hundreds of works.< Less

More > martyrdom of a saint to secular works focusing on fashion and death, portraits, and views of a sea serpent, Rome, and Monte Carlo. Half the prints feature William Hogarth’s satires of contemporary social practices surrounding election politics, beer drinking, and relations between the sexes. Although other notable artists designed prints here—Anthony Van Dyck, Hans Holbein the Younger, Giovanni Piranesi, and Alphonse Mucha—the exhibition’s organization was determined by the prints selected by the sixteen students in Prof. Alison Stewart’s “History of Prints: New Media of the Renaissance” class during fall 2013 in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.< Less

eBook (ePub): $1.99
