Cranach - Parerga und Paralipomena

Neues zu Lucas Cranach und seinen Söhnen

Within 16 detailed essays, various aspects of Cranach research are covered. They show a selection of results from working with the database, including four reattributions of portraits previously considered as early works by Cranach. Working with this digital research database has yielded countless other new findings, which are documented within extensive digital dossiers of the works in the CORPUS CRANACH catalog raisonné. The volume of essays aims to build a bridge to new methods of digital art history, which enable a considerable acceleration of the scientific discourse and, consequently, a faster gain of knowledge.

Michael Hofbauer completed his doctorate on Lucas Cranach's drawings at the Stuttgart Academy of Fine Arts and is the author of the complete catalogue raisonné CORPUS CRANACH. He has written numerous specialist articles on painting in the early modern period and conducts research on phenomenological approaches to the identification of hands and the recognition of forgeries. He is also the scientific director of the digital institute and initiator of the Heidelberg symposia
