Four Portraits

Four Portraits

Recently I’ve been doing some scribbling with my watercolour pencils. Here’s what I came up with.

 Adam KraftAdam Kraft (1440-1507), was a master Nuremberg artist-craftsperson, one of his finest works, the tabernacle, is inside St Lawrence Church, Nuremberg. He portrays himself as a kneeling servant with stonemason tools at the foot of the tabernacle. I toured this church in 2007, the tabernacle is breathtakingly beautiful!

 Albrecht Durer

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), was also a Nuremberg artist, most readers will remember his famous work “Praying hands.”

 Martin Luther

Martin Luther (1483-1546), one of my favourite theological heroes, here depicted during the time as a professor at Wittenberg, ca 1532.

 John Calvin

John Calvin (1509-1564), the popular Geneva-based reformer.
