Lucas Cranach the Younger (October 4, 1515January 25, 1586) was a German Renaissance artist, known for his woodcuts and paintings.

He was a son of Lucas Cranach the Elder. First he was an apprentice in his father's workshop and then his importance grew. Finally after his father's death he took over the workshop.

The style of their painting was so similar that there have been some difficulties in attribution of their works.
He is known for portraits and simple versions of allegorical and mythical scenes.
