Lucas Cranach the elder
- Occupation or Type
No work is clearly identified by Cranach before he went to Vienna at age 30; he may be the creator of earlier works currently attributed to various anonymous masters. He is best known for influential scenes with landscapes incorporating remarkable effects of distance and atmosphere and for his popular woodcuts. He is sometimes mistakenly associated with the surname of "Sunder" or "Sonder," the family with this name being related to Lucas Cranach through marriage and also having come from the town of Kronach.
