Albrecht Dürer: Master Drawings, Watercolors, and Prints from the Albertina, Vienna AUSTRIA
Duration of Exhibit: March 24–June 9, 2013
The exhibition is on view in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art, Mezzanine.
Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, in association with the Albertina, Vienna.
Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) has long been considered the greatest German artist, uniquely combining the status held in Italian art by Michelangelo in the sixteenth century, by Raphael in the 18th and 19th centuries, and by Leonardo da Vinci in our own day.
This groundbreaking exhibition is a culmination of decades of acquisition, study, and exhibitions of early German art at the National Gallery of Art. It presents 91—including most—of the superb Dürer watercolors and drawings from the Albertina and 27 of the museum’s best related engravings and woodcuts. It also includes 19 closely related drawings and prints from the Gallery’s own collection.
