That visor. I’m dying. These are just a couple of the latest ceramic pieces by UK based artist Claire Partington. I wrote about her last year around this time, but these fabulous pieces are included in an upcoming exhibition, titled “Cranach: Artist and Innovator” so I just had to share her work again. Here’s some info about the show:

The archetypal Renaissance man, Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472 – 1553) was one of the most successful German artists of all time.

Cranach’s paintings of German nobility and the leaders of the Protestant Reformation made him a highly sought after portraitist in his own time, while today he is best known for his seductive paintings of the female nude, which beautifully express temptation and its consequences. Cranach was also a talented entrepreneur, founding a successful publishing business and producing powerful woodcut illustrations for Luther’s translation of the bible.

Featuring some of Cranach’s most beguiling paintings and illustrations, on loan from the National Gallery, the Royal Collection, the British Museum and Waddesdon Manor, the exhibition will also showcase Cranach’s enduring appeal to a range of modern and contemporary artists, including: John Currin, Isabelle Hayman, Michael Landy, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, Andrew McIntosh, Ishbel Myerscough, Claire Partington, Pablo Picasso and Raqib Shaw. 

The exhibition will be on view from March 14th through until June 14th 2020 at Compton Verney in Warwickshire.

    Great sense of humor with this work. I am reminded of Kehinde Wiley’s work, taking classical and spinning it.
