Hall 20. Lucas Cranach (1472-1553). Adam and Eve, 1528. Lucas Cranach differs from his contemporary Dürer by his more direct relationship with the Gothic and expressionist tradition that characterizes the German Art. His figures show a more nervous stretching of animated forms, through a delicate and shiver sensuality.
Hall 20. Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528). The Adoration of Magi, 1504 (above, on the right of the title) and Virgin with the pear, 1526 (above, on the left of the title and below, on the souvenir sheet). Albrecht Dürer, the greatest German master of the 16th century, was formed by the engraver Marting Schongauer. He has early shown also remarkable qualities of a painter. He traveled through the whole Europe and was in contact with all artistic movements of his epoch. Influenced by different styles, especially by the venetian school, he also influenced the Italian painting of the 16th century .
