Portrait of a Woman

Oil on panel, 62 x 39 cm
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

Lucas Cranach ran an important workshop in Wittenberg, which produced a second generation of painters following closely in his style, including his sons Hans and Lucas the Younger. The way in which oil paint is handled in the present portrait, and the plainness of the composition, are typical features of this school.
