Portrait of a thirty eight year old man by Lukas van Leiden

A keen interest in lively dynamics, human character is also manifested in the portraits of Luke of Leiden. In contrast to the characteristic of portrait painters of his time showing the model in the interior or landscape, he turns to the older traditions.

In his chest portraits, the background is a neutral plane, which, however, does not mean passive archaization; the more attention is paid to the person portrayed, who breathes energy, showing the focus of the earth, devoid of any idealization of being.
