Around 1500 Lucas Cranach the Elder appeared. Ä. out of artistic nowhere, in Vienna. The volume is devoted in detail to this first known creative period of the painter and presents all of the works that were created in it, the expressive style of which differs markedly from that of the courtly, elegant works of his time in Wittenberg. Lucas Cranach the Elder Ä. (1472–1553) created his earliest known works around 1500 in Vienna, shortly before starting his career as court painter to the Saxon electors in Wittenberg. These brilliant paintings, drawings and woodcuts not only demonstrate the close ties that the almost thirty-year-old had with the humanist circles around Konrad Celtis and Johannes Cuspinian, but also identify him as a pioneer of the so-called Danube School.
