Lucas Cranach the SeniorLucas Cranach the Senior (1472-1553) was the great painter of the Reformation period. His extensive works, sustainably influenced the visual world of the German arts and breathed a completely new life into religious and secular themes.

Along with Albrecht Duerer and Hans Holbein, Lucas Cranach was one of the most famous Renaissance painters in Germany. He owed his success to his talent in dealing with different customers of high nobility and clergy. He was awarded the enigmatic snake seal from the Saxon Elector Frederick the Wise that soon became his incomparable trademark.

Cranach developed a unique style. His portraits go beyond a true-to-nature reproduction, they represent, above all, emotions and characters. Through his friendship with Martin Luther, Cranach was significantly involved in the development of a Protestant imagery, but, at the same time, remained faithful to his Roman Catholic clientele.

Latin: 'make alike'.

Largely faithful reproduction of an original document, e.g. old manuscripts and codices. (Facsimile edition).

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.
