    Lucas Cranach the Elder was born around 1472 in Kronach, Germany. He probably learned the basics of painting in the workshop of his father, Hans Maler. He then trained as a painter in Vienna, and traveled through various cities at a young age to further develop his skills and gain experience.

    After returning to Germany, Cranach settled in Wittenberg and was appointed court painter to the Elector of Saxony. In Wittenberg, he established a successful workshop and became a respected and sought-after artist. Cranach was known for his portraits, altarpieces, and mythological depictions.

    Cranach's style was characterized by his fine lines, bright colors and clear composition. He was one of the most important representatives of the German Renaissance and was influenced by Italian art. His portraits in particular were noted for their vivid rendering of personality and rich detail.

    Cranach was also a pioneer in the field of woodcutting and created numerous illustrations for books and pamphlets. His work had a great influence on subsequent generations of artists, including Albrecht Dürer and Hans Holbein the Younger.

    After Cranach the Elder passed his workshop to his son Lucas Cranach the Younger in 1550, he retired from active artistic work. He died in Weimar on October 16, 1553.
