XIR498131 Hunt in Honour of the Emperor Charles V near Hartenfels Castle, Torgau, 1544 (oil on panel) (see also 38682, 72409 and 498129) by Cranach, Lucas, the Elder (1472-1553); Prado, Madrid, Spain; (add.info.: In the left centre foreground is a portrait of the Elector Johann Friedrich of Saxony the Magnanimous (1503-54) and on the far left the Emperor Charles V (1500-58) wearing the insignia of the Order of the Golden Fleece; on the right is a portrait of the Elector's wife, Sybille of Cleves (1512-54) taking aim with her crossbow; Cranach and his workshop made several paintings with similar hunting scenes and probably they were commissioned by Johann Friedrich to give to other German princes in the 1540s; there is also an allegorical meaning since hunting was a symbol of good government and is therefore an allusion to harmony and collaboration between rulers; Johann Friedrich was a strong supporter of Luther and the Protestant Reformation and would later be imprisoned by Charles V in 1547 after the defeat at the battle of MAOEhlberg of the Lutheran Schmalkaldic League of Protestant princes by the Catholic princes of the Holy Roman Empire; however in 1544 there appeared to be a good relationship between the Emperor and the Elector;
