Item description for Lucas Cranach the Elder (Pegasus Series) by Mirela Proske...
An in-depth exploration of the life and art of the artist considered to be the founder of "Lutheran" painting.
One of the greatest artists of sixteenth-century Germany, Lucas Cranach the Elder employed his talents in a variety of genres, including portraiture, etching, engraving, draughtsmanship, and painting--more than 1,000 works are attributed to his studio. High quality reproductions of a generous sampling of his works are given close inspection in this volume that brings into context Cranach's contribution to the religious and secular societies in which he lived. Mirela Proske examines the full array of Cranach's oeuvre--the portraits and female nudes for which he is most famous; his religious and mythological works; his hunting and nature scenes. Tracing the artist's life from his childhood in Kronach to his years in Vienna, Wittenberg, and Weimar, she paints a vivid portrait of a rapidly changing world and a brilliant artist whose faith grounded his vocation.
