The serpent & the lamb : Cranach, Luther, and the making of the Reformation by Steven E Ozment( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This compelling book retells and revises the story of the German Renaissance and Reformation through the lives of two controversial men of the sixteenth century: the Saxon court painter Lucas Cranach (the Serpent) and the Wittenberg monk-turned-reformer Martin Luther (the Lamb). Contemporaries and friends (each was godfather to the other{u2019}s children), Cranach and Luther were very different Germans, yet their collaborative successes merged art and religion into a revolutionary force that became the Protestant Reformation. Steven Ozment, an internationally recognized historian of the Reformation era, reprises the lives and works of Cranach (1472{u2013}1553) and Luther (1483{u2013}1546) in this generously illustrated book. He contends that Cranach's new art and Luther's oratory released a barrage of criticism upon the Vatican, the force of which secured a new freedom of faith and pluralism of religion in the Western world. Between Luther's pulpit praise of the sex drive within the divine estate of marriage and Cranach's parade of strong, lithe women, a new romantic, familial consciousness was born. The 'Cranach woman' and the 'Lutheran household' -- both products of the merged Renaissance and Reformation worlds -- evoked a new organization of society and foretold a new direction for Germany."--Publisher's description
Lucas Cranach, the Elder : painting materials, techniques and workshop practice by Gunnar Heydenreich( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study provides the first exhaustive description of the materials, techniques and studio practices of Lucas Cranach the Elder. The author describes the characteristic elements of the painters production, drawing on results of technical examination, as well as an evaluation of documentary sources. Approximately 300 panel paintings are examined using a wide range of analytical methods. Furthermore, the author documents the breadth and diversity of Lucas Cranach the Elders unique contribution to 16th-century German canvas painting. The importance of this almost lost part of the court painters oeuvre is completely reassessed. This work is a contribution towards the history of Renaissance painting in Germany with regard to materials and techniques. It offers a detailed, deeper understanding of the various processes of artistic production in the workshop of Lucas Cranach the Elder. There is no similar recent publication on Cranach available (the last monograph on the painter was published in 1974). - Publisher

The Bible in pictures : illustrations from the workshop of Lucas Cranach (1534) by Lucas Cranach( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Martin Luther's Bible, published in 1534, was the first complete German Bible and a pivotal event in the history of Christianity. Luther's revolutionary translation, modern in vernacular and interpretation, made the Bible accessible to laypeople, fueled anger and revulsion toward Rome and the Papacy, and begat a new religion: Protestantism. The most desirable copies came with shockingly graphic and politically-charged illustrations, such as those depicting the Whore of Babylon riding a seven-headed beast while wearing the Papal crown, or the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse led by a Turkish soldier"--Publisher website

Dieser Katalog widmet sich dem Blick des Künstlers auf den Menschen am Übergang vom Spätmittelalter zur Frühen Neuzeit im deutschen Sprachraum. Hochkarätige Kunstwerke - darunter Gemälde Albrecht Dürers, Lucas Cranachsd. Ä. und Hans Holbeins d.J. sowie Meisterwerke der Bildhauerei und Zeichenkunst - zeigen, wie der Mensch um 1500 ins Zentrum des künstlerischen Interesses rückte und Künstler zu Entdeckern und Erfindern des Menschen avancierten. Gelangte doch gerade die deutsche Bildnismalereizu hoch bedeutenden und sehr eigenständigen künstlerischen Leistungen, deren besondere Stärke in der authentischen Erfassung einer Person, gepaart mit der subtilen psychologischen Durchdringung der Dargestellten liegt. Darüber hinaus gewährt uns das Auge des Künstlers einen faszinierenden Einblick in die spätmittelalterliche und frühneuzeitliche Gesellschaft.
