GERMANY ~ Martin Luther - Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum ~

... Painting of the German reformer Martin Luther who was the first and greatest figure in the 16th-century Reformation... to the present he has been a symbol of Protestantism... he became one of Western history’s most significant figures and his writings changed the course of religious and cultural history in the West... with great matching stamp and special postmark to celebrate 500 years of Reformation... Thanks once more dear Dustin for this unique item!! ✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

This is one of the many printed and painted portraits of Martin Luther (1483-1546) that were produced by Cranach (1472-1553) and his workshop beginning about 1520.

The Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum  is an art museum in  the city of Braunschweig. Founded in 1754, the this museum is one of the oldest museums in Europe. It houses an important collection of Western old master paintings.

The present museum building was opened in 1887. In 2010 an extension building was added to the museum. The historical building was closed for renovation for seven years afterwards. The museum reopened on 23 October 2016.
