Albrecht Dürer: Master of the Black Line
May 10 - Aug. 25, 2014
German artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) was a virtuoso as a printmaker, invoking comparisons with Apelles, the ancient Greek painter who represented the highest standard of excellence in the Renaissance. This exhibition features a selection of 33 of Dürer’s most highly regarded prints, which range from small woodcuts to large and ambitious engravings. Originally created for a sophisticated audience from all corners of Europe, the pieces encompass a spectrum of religious and secular themes in rich and complex ways.
