Lucas Cranach – Renaissance Beauties – Sinebrychoff Art Museum 26.9.2019 ─ 5.1.2020

Sinebrychoff Art Museum

Lucas Cranach – Renaissance Beauties exhibition at the Sinebrychoff Art Museum! Renaissance Beauties is the first monographic exhibition in Finland of the great German Renaissance master Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472−1553). The works on display include paintings and prints from the collections of European museums. They represent popular themes in the artist’s oeuvre: female portraits and beauties, both rendered in a personal and recognizable style. The exhibition is open from 26th of September until  5th of January 2020.

Cranach’s fascinating and enigmatic paintings have spoken to artists over the ages. Among the best-known examples are probably the interpretations by Picasso, represented in the exhibition by some prints.

A present-day perspective on the handsome jewellery depicted in Cranach’s works is offered by a number of impressive items created by German jewellery artists.
