Klassische illustratoren, III From the Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition: Lucas Cranach, 1472-1553, German painter and engraver. He settled in Wittenberg c.1504 and was court painter successively under three electors of Saxony. There he maintained a flourishing workshop and was twice burgomaster. Cranach was a friend of Luther, whose doctrine he upheld in numerous paintings and woodcuts, and he has been called the painter of the Reformation. He was a rapid and prolific painter, and the work turned out by his studio is uneven in excellence. Naïve and fanciful, often awkward in draftsmanship, it has, nonetheless, freshness and originality and a warm, rich color. His portraits are particularly successful. Among his best-known works are Repose in Egypt; Judgment of Paris; Adam and Eve; and Crucifixion. This last contains figures of Luther and Cranach. His many famous protraits include those of Elector John Frederick and Self-Portrait. Cranach was also an accomplished miniaturist. He produced a few copperplates and designs for woodcuts. His son and pupil Lucas Cranach, the Younger, 1515-86, continued the tradition of his father whose workshop, signature, and popularity he inherited. Their work is often indistinguishable.
