Cranach: Artist & Innovator at Compton Verney

Inspired by four works by Lucas Cranach the Elder in Compton Verney’s collection, this exhibition explores the leading German Renaissance artist’s body of work, examining his workshop practice, and the development of his innovative and stylised imagery, displayed alongside modern and contemporary works influenced by the master.

Two Royal Collection paintings are displayed, including Portrait of a Lady and her Son, long thought to be by a nineteenth-century imitator of Cranach, but through technical research recently revealed to be an autograph work. The exhibition is on display until January 2021.
