1957 Print Christ Mount Olives Lucas Cranach Religion Scene Biblical Forest XAP9

146283_XAP9_009

This is an original 1957 halftone print of Christ on the Mount of Olives by Lucas Cranach.

Cranach was a part of the avant-garde, modernist movement called Expressionism. It originated in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century and remained popular during the Weimar culture in the 1930s. It aims to present the world from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Artists in this movement sought to express meaning or emotional experience rather than physical reality.
