Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553) is considered one of the most significant German Renaissance masters. The Sinebrychoff Art Museums exhibition 2019 Lucas Cranach – Renaissance Beauties presents an area of Cranachs oeuvre that has received less attention: female beauty and nudes. The starting points for the exhibition concept are the only Cranach paintings in Finland: Portrait of a Young Woman (1525) and Lucretia (1530), both in the collections of the Sinebrychoff Art Museum. Cranachs style is easily recognisable and distinctive, and would today be described as a good brand.
