Today I begin with another work by Lucas Cranach The Elder. Christ And The Adulteress dates to 1533.
Hans Baldung Grien created the dark, compelling painting Eve, the Serpent, and Death between 1510-15.
This is a portrait by Titian. Daniele Barbaro dates to 1545.
Jacopo Tintoretto painted Portrait of an Elderly Man between 1565-75.
Lastly today, another portrait. Bartholomeo Veneto painted Portrait of a Young Lady between 1520-30.
I'll be back with this series after the theme day. Tomorrow is something different.
Beautiful painting and portraits.ReplyDelete
Amazing artists. Like photographs.ReplyDelete
Such skilful painting, I wonder how long each one took to complete.ReplyDelete
A beard was apparently very in fashion for men of course !ReplyDelete
Beautiful portraits! Have a great day!ReplyDelete
@Nancy: thank you.ReplyDelete
@John: I do know that oil paintings take a very long time to dry.
@Gattina: it was.
...and they weren't known as masters for nothing!ReplyDelete
Gee, when I saw the title of this post I thought you were talking about me!ReplyDelete
Those portraits look like photos. Incredible!ReplyDelete
It is really incredible to have these paintings from 5-600 years ago.ReplyDelete

I had the pleasure of visiting Cranach's workshop in Wittenberg.ReplyDelete
Amazing ... we live in places with no real “high culture”, so your guided tours are appreciated ! You are a good docent!ReplyDelete
I've always love Cranach and Tintoretto but the Veneto is new to me and my favorite in this group.ReplyDelete

William - I like the style of the Old Masters. But the painting of Eve, the serpent and death was truly creepy!ReplyDelete
