Exhibition: ‘Dürer and the Renaissance Between Germany and Italy’
Date(s) - 21 Feb 2018 - 24 Jun 2018
9:30 am - 7:30 pm
The art of the Renaissance takes centre stage in the spaces of Palazzo Reale thanks to the new exhibition dedicated to German artist Albrecht Dürer. The over 130 works feature a selection of paintings, drawings and graphic works born from the tight relationship and interaction between the artist and other relevant European maestros of his times. Spread over six different sections -
“Dürer and his relationship with Venice and Italy”, “Geometry, Size and Architecture”, “Discovering nature, discovering the world”, “The discovery of individuals”, “Dürer the griever: Apocalypse and Christology”, “Classical art and its alternatives” – analyse the core themes of the artist’s works and research, providing insightful highlights on his vision of nature, art, mythology and portraits.
To highlight Dürer’s attitude towards art, his creations are set aside with major works by important German artists such as Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Altdorfer, Hans Baldung Grien and Italian painters, and graphic designers from Northern Italy (from Milan to Venice) such as Giorgione, Andrea Mantegna, Leonardo da Vinci, Andrea Solario, Giovanni Bellini, Jacopo de’Barbari and Lorenzo Lotto.
