This engaging exhibition features more than thirty woodblock prints and engravings by (or after) the German Renaissance master printmaker Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528). The artist was an extraordinary innovator who revolutionized the medium of printmaking in the late fifteenth century. Trained as a goldsmith, the painter, etcher and draftsman was praised for the remarkable compositional complexity and high level of naturalism in his works. Dürer established an international reputation for his remarkable skills in printmaking, which he had single-handedly elevated to an independent art form.

Examples from his celebrated Small Woodcut Passion (1508-10), Life of the Virgin (1503-10), and the full set of sixteen prints from the famous Engraved Passion (15047-12) will be featured in the exhibition. The range of subjects include narratives from the Old and New Testaments and mythology, portraits, and images of saints. The exhibition also examines several works by some of Dürer’s most influential contemporaries: Albrecht Altdorfer and Martin Schongauer, among others.
