Bonnie J. Noble received her B.A. in the history and literature of Religion from Northwestern University, her M.A. in Art History from the University of Pennsylvania, and her Ph.D. in Art History from Northwestern University. She teaches Art History at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.Review:
Good literature on Cranach is very difficult to find in English... As a succinct and smart discussion of the material, Dr. Noble's text will prove quite useful. (Anonymous Reader)
Perhaps the text's greatest virtue is its relative uniqueness within the English language scholarship. The paintings and subjects included within the book have all been discussed at great length within the German scholarship. Dr. Noble usefully pulls this material together and summarizes it cogently. This is a real plus since there is so little than once can send students, especially undergraduate students, to read on Cranach's later art... In each chapter, she offers her won readings, which modify or amplify other interpretations. Also within the German literature, it is difficult finding a single voice or adept narrator who discusses all of these works. The consistency of Dr. Noble's voice or text is admirable. (Anonymous Reader)
This study is remarkable for its attention to detail throughout. Developed from Noble's dissertation, it provides extensive documentation of German scholarship on Cranach and the Reformation period. In addition, because the book was originally a dissertation, Noble meticulously attends to the respects in which her arguments differ from those of her predecessors, thus bringing a more contemporary and art historical approach. ... This is an excellent book for every Reformation historian to read. It offers a cogent argument for broadening one's perceptions of the way in which believers were instructed and shaped in the ways of Lutheran theology and practice... Noble's analysis is sophisticated for she understands well that many and varied factors played a role in how religious images were sought, created, placed, and perceived. She raises many fascinating questions and provides a well-developed approach for beginning to engage them. (Lutheran Quarterly)
