Corpus Cranach – Digital Catalogue Raisonné of the Works by the Cranach Workshop and Their Epigones
Around 2,500 works by Lucas Cranach the Elder, his sons, their workshop and their epigones have been preserved and are traceable owing to faithful reproductions. Since 2007 Cranach.net has been compiling a central index of these works.
As dating and attribution are often disputed and in need of revision the catalogue raisonné follows a universal classification by motif. Thus, it is not only possible to identify an individual work but to also directly compare whole groups of works by motif.
For better comparison works which are considered forgeries or copies are also listed.
