"The proof that the Reformation was not against art as art is seen in the effects of the Reformation on culture. We should not forget that Lucas Cranach (1472–1553), the German painter and engraver, was a friend of Luther and painted Luther and his wife many times...The vocal parts of the 1524 hymnbook were probably engraved by Cranach...There is no indication at all that Luther disapproved of Cranach's painting in all the varied forms that it took."
~Dr. Francis Schaeffer, How Should We Then Live?
