From 1529 Lucas Cranach the Elder, and his son Lucas the Younger depicted the Christian virtue of Love, Caritas or Caritas, in some dozen different versions. It happened only in individual pictures, where Caritas (Charity) does not appear in the company of the seven (or more) virtues and vices. It is Caritas who appears almost exclusively in the depictions of Virtue by Cranach, with the exception of two pictures of Justice in the form of a lightly veiled female nude carrying scales and a sword.
