Lucas Cranach the Elder, Martin Luther & the Art of the Reformation examines the collaboration between the revolutionary leader of the Reformation and one of the great artists of early modern Germany, his friend and supporter, Lucas Cranach the elder. On the 500th anniversary of Luther's 95 Theses, this book examines the nature of art and image-making in the context of Reformation iconoclasm and the tradition of Catholic Renaissance art in the North. It focuses on Luther's Doctrine of Justification, which states the path of salvation lies in faith alone, and how it shaped the religious art that helped spread his new vision of Christianity.
