Sandra Bowden, Reformation Altarpiece, 2017, encaustic with gold leaf.

This multi-panel grouping speaks with quiet reflection on Lucas Cranach the Elder’s Reformation Altarpiece in the City Church in Wittenberg, created in 1547. The distinct shape identifies this historic work and because of its luminous surface it invites the viewer to enjoy its radiance, while drawing on memory and imagination to recall the imagery that inspired the faithful.
The Reformation Altarpiece was given to CTSFW by the artist in October 2018.
