LUCAS CRANACH THE ELDER. Painting materials, Techniques and workshop Practice

LUCAS CRANACH THE ELDER (c. 1472-1553)

This study provides the first exhaustive description of the materials, techniques and studio practices of Lucas Cranach the Elder (c. 1472-1553). Heydenreich draws on detailed technical examination of Cranach’s paintings, as well as analysis of documentary sources, to explain the characteristic elements of more than three hunderd of Cranach’s paintings. Furthermore, the author documents the breadth and diversity of Lucas Cranach the Elder’s unique contribution to 16th-century German canvas painting. The importance of this almost forgotten part of the court painter’s oeuvre is completely reassessed.
In the process, the author provides unprecedented insight into the material and technical history of Renaissance painting in Germany. There is no similar recent publication on Cranach available -- the last monograph on the painter was published in 1974.

Gunnar Heydenreich is Head of Paintings Conservation at the Restaurierungszentrum Düsseldorf, Germany. He has published extensively on historic painting techniques, as well as in the field of conservation and restoration.

Reviews
Statement from Dr. Susan Foister, Director of Collections and Curator of Early Netherlandish, German and British Painting at the National Gallery, London: ’This book is an outstanding contribution to the field of Cranach studies. Gunnar Heydenreich is able to shed new light on a great many tangled art historical issues. But all those with an interest in Renaissance Germany will have much to learn from this extremely important study.’
