Professor of Art History, Pia F. Cuneo considers the careers of three master artists whose personal lives and artistic production were profoundly influenced by the Reformation. Charting the responses of Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553), and Hans Baldung Grien (ca. 1484-1545) to religious, social, and economic changes wrought by the Reformation reveals the complex and dynamic interrelationship between art and history in the age of Luther.
