The Baptism of Christ, 1530s

Lucas Cranach

The Baptism of Christ, 1530s. Painted in minute detail, Cranach?s majestic scene includes elements characteristic of landscapes in 16th-century German art: verdant forest, hilltop city, and distant mountains. A close associate of Protestant reformer Martin Luther, Cranach adapted Christian imagery to reflect Luther?s belief that religious art must narrate scripture. The Gospels describe Christ?s baptism with the heavens opening, a dove descending, and a voice saying, "Here is my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased," which Cranach painted in Latin directly onto the clouds.
