Lucas Cranach at RA

Lucas Cranach the Elder - Detail from The Golden Age (ca 1530)Lucas Cranach the Elder seems to be in vogue. Last year The Courtauld Institute of Art Gallery held the first ever exhibition in Britain devoted to his work (CLICK). His The Ill-Matched Lovers also went on show in London last year (CLICK). And don't miss his Venus wearing a silly hat (CLICK). Now it's the turn of the Royal Academy of Arts to present "the first major exhibition in Britain" of "this important master of the German Renaissance." The RA isn't kidding: 70 works. That's a biggy. Cranach will run from 8 March to 8 June 2008 in the Sackler Wing and promises to be a lot more interesting than all that French twaddle in its current From Russia show. Tickets are cheaper too: £8 adults, £7 concessions. But that's 87.5% for silver surfers! You tight gnats' whatsits!
