Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Numerous color and b&w reproductions from mostly European and a few US museums, reinforce the commentary of Stepanov (St. Petersburg Institute of Art History) on Cranach the Elder as a German Renaissance master. Though not as well known as his Catholic Italian contemporaries, Protestant Cranach bequeathed a legacy of diverse works on religious and secular subjects (hunting scenes are notable) and painting techniques which influenced generations of artists. As a court artist (for Frederick the Wise, Saxony), he also designed costumes, furniture, and parade-ground arms. Includes a chronology of the works of Cranach and his notable peers, but no index. 9.5x12.5<"> Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
