Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Durer, by Mollie

Today we commemorate these two wonderful artists. You can’t hit a museum in Europe without seeing some of Durer’s masterpieces and Cranach’s altarpiece at   St. Peter and Paul Church in Weimar, Germany, was one of the first pieces of art I took the time to study. It illustrated the cover of a book by Kurt Marquardt on the church growth movement. My pastor was leading us through the book for Bible Study and we probably spent a few weeks on the cover alone. I have treasured it ever since. For a wonderful exploration of just that piece, head on over to the beautiful Cyberbrethren site for a meditation. It’s a perfect way to spend Monday of Holy Week.
