FAMOUS PAINTINGS EXHIBITED

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Three paintings loaned by Paul J. Sachs '00, of New York, have been placed on temporary exhibition in the gallery of the Fogg Art Museum. One of these is a portrait of Martin Luther bearing the date of 1546 and the dragon crest signature of Lucas Cranach, but in all probability is a work of his school. Although it does not possess the quality of the finest paintings by Cranach, like the Portrait of a Lady, in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, it nevertheless is an extremely interesting characterization of the great reformer, and it illustrates the general manner of Cranach, who was one of the greatest German painters of the 16th century. The other two pictures are Sienese works of the 15th century. One is a Madonna and Child, painted by Francesco di Giorgio, and a charming illustration of his dainty manner. The other is a painting of St. John the Baptist, attributed to Giovanni di Paolo.
