CRANACH, Lucas the Elder
(b. 1472, Kronach, d. 1553, Weimar)

Deer Hunt of Elector Friedrich the Wise

Oil on wood, 80 x 114 cm
Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

This painting is one of Cranach's first hunting paintings and is still much smaller than the large-format, representative panels that have been produced in the painter's Wittenberg workshop since the 1540s.
