Dürer’s Journeys: Travels of a Renaissance Artist


National Gallery / London / Art

Emerging as the single most prolific, unique, and influential artist of the German Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer was well traveled. His trips through the Alps to Italy and north to the Netherlands exposed him to all areas of Renaissance production, and helped spread his celebrity throughout the continent. Featuring dozens of loans from across the world, this exhibition brings together examples of the various mediums in which Dürer worked—painting, drawing, printmaking—as well as letters that connect the importance of his travels to the scope of his production. A highlight of the show is his painting Madonna and Child (circa 1496), which has never before been shown in England. —Sabina Vitale
