Spranger’s figure style is characteristic and clearly evident here, as is their typification, depiction and distinctive, elegant carnality. Spranger was originally from Antwerp. After working in the services of Pope Pius V, he was offered work in the court of Emperor Maximilian II in Vienna, where he painted The Resurrection with his clear, typical style – swift, coiling movements of slender bodies, the ideal harmony of landscape and figurative elements, excellent work with light, and bold, clear colors. Even in his study drawings we find considerable virtuosity in refined posture. After the court moved to Prague, he served Emperor Rudolf II and thanks to a large number of commissions, he was able to set up his own painting workshop. His paintings inspired the entire next generation of artists.
