Lucas Cranach the Younger was the son of Lucas Cranach the Elder. The name
Cranach was not really the family name, but the name of the city, in which
they lived.(The city of Cronach was in Franconia which was in Germany.)
Cranach the Elder, whose father was an artist, also had three sons who were
artists. The family members were close friends of Martin Luther and his
family. Lucas the Younger worked with his father and often painted the
clothing and less important elements of the pictures his father was painting.
Their work was so similar that in some cases we don't know whether the father
or the son painted the picture. Lucas the Younger took over the workshop when
his father died. In the painting, Conversion of Paul, Jesus is appearing to
Saul of Tarsus as he is on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians. Read
the scripture to learn more about this interesting story. The story of the
conversion of Saul be found in each of the gospels in the Bible. You can also
read it in the book of Acts.
