The Cranachs Father and Son in the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts

The first personal exhibition of the greatest artists of the North European Renaissance was opened in Moscow on March 4.

      For the first time the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts presents a monoexhibition of Lucas Cranach the Elder and Lucas Cranach Junior. The exposition is titled Between the Renaissance and Mannerism.

      A considerable number of works the Cranachs are concentrated in Russia. For the first time all of them have been gathered together. These are paintings from the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, the Hermitage Museum, rarely exhibited works from the Nizhny Novgorod Museum and several canvasses from private collections.

      In addition to that, paintings from Madrid, Budapest, Prague, and Germany have been provided for the exhibition.

      Art critics point out that the aesthetic ideal of the Chranachs is surprisingly similar to the modern ideal of beauty.

      48 paintings and 50 graphic works by the father and son will be displayed.

      The exhibition runs from March 4 to May 15 in the Main Building at the address 12, Volkhonka Street, Moscow.
