The Cincinnati Art Museum recently unveiled a major exhibition of prints by arguably the medium’s greatest practitioner: Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528).
In commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s ground-shaking act of protest in Wittenberg, Germany, the Cincinnati Art Museum has mounted “Albrecht Dürer: The Age of Reformation and Renaissance.” On view November 17 through February 11, the exhibition explores the impact of the Italian Renaissance and the Reformation through the prints of Dürer and his contemporaries. It follows the development of Dürer’s genius from his apprenticeship through the eve of the Reformation. What’s more, the exhibition offers insights into his innovative use of printmaking, his patrons, and humanistic friends.
