Cranach: Luther’s Painter

Submitted by on April 23, 2014 – 9:23 amNo Comment

Lucas_Cranach_d._Ä._063No particular anniversary of Lucas Cranach is near on the horizon, but since Steven Ozment will soon be at the Seminary to lecture on “How Cranach Saved Luther,” it seemed appropriate to highlight a little more information on the famous Wittenberg painter of Luther portraits and … naked women … (separate paintings, of course).  See Cranach’s bio page on the Reformation500 website.  Also, if you are interested in a thorough treatment of Cranach’s collaboration with Luther, check out Ozment’s recent book, “The Serpent and the Lamb: Cranach, Luther, and the Making of the Reformation.”
