The Cranachhöfe documents the work of Lucas Cranach the Elder, Lucas Cranach the Younger, Hans Cranach,Augustin Cranach and Lucas Cranach III in Wittenberg. The building at Markt 4 and the pharmacy with courtyard at Schlossstraße 1 is where Lucas Cranach and his descendants lived and worked. Lucas Cranach the Elder had set up the printing room in the Cranachhof in the once famous printing town of Wittenberg. He printed the 95 Theses, the first part of the Luther Bible, Luther’s table speeches and numerous woodcuts were printed there too. After the reconstruction of the Cranachhöfe, a historic printing room was again set up in Schlossstrasse, in which texts (Luther’s table speeches) and illustrations (in linocut) are now produced using the book high-print process. On special occasions, the historic Gutenberg Press at Cranachhof Markt 4 will be activated to demonstrate how printing was done during the Middle Ages.
For some of his artwork see Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553) in the Lucas Cranach Digital Archive. I like his partridges (with audio) shown at Lucas Cranach the Elder | Dresden | The Morgan Library. Here’s the site for The Cranach Foundation (cranach-stiftung.de) with loads information on the history of the two houses and the exhibits.
I thoroughly enjoyed Wittenberg. It is well worth a visiting. It would be nice to see more of it someday.
