Hans Baldung Grien's witches
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
German Renaissance artist Hans Baldung Grien was extremely interested in witches and made many images of them in different media, including several very beautiful drawings finished with bodycolour, which are amongst the most exciting images of the Renaissance.
The fascination with witches lasted until the end of his life, in 1544, the year before his death, Baldung did a woodcut titled the Bewitched Groom (Sleeping Groom and a Sorceress).
It is to be noted that the works by Baldung and Dürer were produced before the era of the witch hunts reached its peak.
