Sibylla, Emilia and Sidonia von Sachsen Princesses of Saxony

around 1535, Artist: Lucas Cranach d. Ä.

 

 

Sibylla, Emilia and Sidonia von Sachsen Princesses of Saxony

Whether Cranach was placing a biblical figure in the courtly milieu of his own time, as in “Judith” (Inv. No. GG 858), or painting a portrait of the three daughters of Duke Henry the Pious to a great extent the style remains the same. Independent of the subject, these are characteristic examples of Cranach’s unmistakable personal style, which uses planar compositions and colouration to decorative effect.

Location: Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien, Gemäldegalerie Saal IX
