Study of Three Girls Heads, Lucas Cranach the elder (1472-1553) Featured 13 Nov 2009 Image

Study of Three Girls Heads, Lucas Cranach the elder (1472-1553)

Oil on panel, German School, around 1525. Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553) was a German painter and printmaker. He was one of the leading German painters and printmakers of the Renaissance in the early 16th century. As court painter of the Elector of Saxony, the patron of?Luther, Cranach is remembered as the chief artist of the?Reformation. He painted altarpieces, Lutheran subject pictures and portraits, as well as mythological decorative works and nudes. There is some uncertainty about the authenticity of Cranach the Elder's last name. He is probably named after his birthplace, and there are theories that his real name may have been Sunder or Muller. Many details of his life are also uncertain; he is thought to have visited the Holy Land in 1493. What is known is that he spent much of his life in Wittenburg under the patronage of the Elector Frederick the Wise, who employed him as a court painter. He was also endowed with a coat of arms and was twice the Burgomeister of the town. He later worked for various other German nobles, among them Frederick the Magnanimous, and his career as both a painter and engraver was very successful. Working during the Reformation, Cranach was a devoutly religious man and a friend of Martin Luther, whom he sometimes portrayed in his paintings. He retired in 1552 to Weimar, leaving his sons, Hans and Lucas the Younger, to carry on his workshop. This painting is believed to be a study for the three goddesses of Venus, Juno or Minerva in Cranach's masterpiece, The Judgement of Paris. It is thought also to be a triple portrait of Cranach's three daughters
