A central figure of Renaissance humanism, Dürer revolutionized the arts of drawing, painting, and printmaking in Germany and throughout Europe. The exhibition explores Dürer and his legacy, including Dürer and the German Renaissance; German Mannerism and the princely courts; and artists of the Imperial court under Rudolf II. The exhibition presents new research and new discoveries to create a better understanding of an iconic artist, his world, and his legacy.
