Late Renaissance   •   Lucas Cranach the Younger @ Wikipedia

Lucas Cranach the Younger was the youngest son of the artist Lucas Cranch the Elder , who had taught him to paint and from which he later took over the Cranach workshop. This was a printing company and an art enterprise that led Lucas Cranach the Younger so successfully that it became popular throughout Europe and was known for colorful paintings of the highest quality. However, he was not only a well-known artist and businessman, but also mayor of Wittenberg and father of nine children. His son Augustin also became an artist and then took over the workshop from him.

Lucas mostly painted portraits, often of well-known personalities such as the reformers Martin Luther and Phillipp Melanchthon. Many of his paintings also show Biblical scenes that are very rich in figures and elaborate. Lucas Cranch signed his works with the family crest. On the crest is a serpent with wings, a golden ring with red ruby ??hanging from the mouth and wearing a red crown. His father represented the snake with bat wings, but he changed it into bird wings. So he could keep the family crest and still be different from his father.

Lucas Cranach the Younger is still one of the most important painters of the Renaissance, but although his works are even richer than the works of his father, he is still in the shadow of his father. © Meisterdrucke
