Têtes à têtes
Lucas Cranach le Jeune / Collège Molière de Colmar, Portraits
6.11.2021 – 07.02.2022
On 6 November 2021, the Musée Unterlinden will inaugurate an exhibition showcasing a series of portraits drawn by Lucas Cranach the Younger (1515-1586), one of the masters of the German Renaissance. These 16th-century portraits of Saxony’s aristocracy will be juxtaposed with a series of photographic portraits of present-day men and women representing Culture in Alsace, taken by final-year students at Colmar’s Collège Molière middle school. An exceptional loan The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Reims has been closed since autumn 2019 for renovation and extension works but has chosen to remain in the limelight with the help of various external events. The Musée Unterlinden has benefitted from the exceptional loan from the museum’s collections of a series of thirteen portraits drawn in the mid-16th century by Lucas Cranach the Younger.
