Lucas Cranach, dit l'Ancien (1472-1553)

German Renaissance painter and engraver Lucas Müller, known as Lucas Cranach the Elder, began his career in Vienna before becoming the official painter to Frederick III of Saxony at the court of Wittenberg. Cranach the Elder is especially known for his numerous portraits of Martin Luther and the aristocracy. Mythological nudes also constitute an important part of his artistic production, as for example with his series of paintings of Venus, not very modest these young girls with prepubescent forms often have suggestive positions and looks. As a businessman, Cranach enjoyed great economic and artistic success. After his death, his son Lucas (Cranach the Younger) took over the management of the workshop and became a renowned artist.
