Lucas Cranach was one of the greatest European painters of the 16th century. This exhibition - the first to be devoted to the artist in a Benelux country - replaces the work of this leading figure of the German Renaissance in the social, cultural, and artistic context of his time. A court painter, he also rubbed shoulders with great figures such as Martin Luther, while liberating nudity and the power of women in a sensual, anti-academic style. Some 150 paintings, drawings, and rarely seen engravings show the authenticity and originality of his sophisticated artistry, his work in the studio, and his close bonds with his German, Italian, and Dutch contemporaries, including Dürer and Metsys. A journey through a fascinating period in European history.
