Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553) was appointed to the court of the Elector of Saxony in Wittenberg in 1505. He lived here for almost half a century and created those paintings that are now in the world's great museums: He portrayed the electors and reformers, designed altarpieces or small cabinet pieces on Venus, Eve & Co. Around 1511/1512 he acquired the courtyards Markt 4 and 5. Lucas Cranach the Younger was born here on October 4, 1515. In 1518, Cranach the Elder bought the courtyard at Schlossstraße 1, which his son Lucas later took over.
