The Early Dürer

24/05/2012 - 02/09/2012
In many ways, the great Nuremberg-based artist Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was way ahead of his time: He developed a hyper-realistic, highly modern style of painting, and he achieved fame during his own lifetime through prolific printmaking and clever branding. A new exhibit that opened on May 24 in Dürer's hometown showcases works by the Renaissance era mastermind with a focus on his formative years. The Dürer exhibition at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum is the largest in Germany in 40 years. With a focus on Dürer's early creative period, it includes self-portraits and portraits of others, as well as many of his incredibly detailed nature studies and drawings. The exhibit includes the museum's own Dürer collection, plus some 120 of the artist's most important works provided by more than 50 lenders around the world. Beyond paintings, Dürer's wide body of work also includes religious works, altarpieces, copper engravings and woodcuts. Dürer was born in Nuremberg, where he also died. During his lifetime he made several trips abroad, including to Italy, that influenced his life and work as an artist. As the Hamburg-based weekly Die Zeit recently reported, Dürer was a supremely self-confident artist the likes of which would be hard to find even today. The exhibit runs through September 2, 2012. Dürer's historic house, which also serves as a living museum, is also on view in Nuremberg.
