Albrecht Dürer: From Germany to Georgia

Germany’s biggest exhibit of works by the German artist Albrecht Dürer opens at Germanisches National Museum on May 24, 2012. Fifty-one lenders from 12 countries sent 120 of Durer’s most important works to Nuremberg, Germany.

The exhibition spans from his oldest work, from 1484 (a self-portrait from the Albertina in Vienna), to “Adoration of the Magi” (1504), from the Uffizi in Florence. His most outstanding works appear in a collective exhibition that illustrates his self-portraits and portraits of his family and friends, his ambitious nature studies and dramatic narratives as well as drawings and panel paintings.

GMOA will also have a special exhibition on display featuring Dürer’s work from June 16 until August 12, 2012, in conjunction with the temporary exhibition "A Divine Light: Northern Renaissance Paintings from the Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery.” The exhibition, titled "Dürer and His Legacy" will highlight his naturalistic works that suggest depth and texture using only the black lines of etching, engraving and woodcut. Perhaps the greatest of the Northern Renaissance artists and one of the most accomplished printmakers in the history of Western art, Dürer left a legacy of work that can be enjoyed all over the world.
