With the exhibition 'Beautiful Mind: A Gem for Cranach', beginning on 20 May, the Berlin Kunstgewerbemuseum presents an exhibition of contemporary jewellery design inspired by jewellery from the era of Cranach the Younger. In May 2014, on the 500th anniversary of Lucas Cranach the Younger's birth, the Kunststiftung of Saxony-Anhalt announced a national competition. The competition sought contemporary artistic interpretations of jewellery worn by Cranach the Younger, his wives, sons, daughters, as well as the contemporaries he portrayed. Some 146 artists entered the competition, representing each of the federal states of Germany. The 51 works selected for exhibition offer a broad perspective on contemporary artistic work from across Germany. Works included by Daniel Kruger. Until August 28
