Albertina, Vienna will display works by Albrecht Dürer.The Albertina is home to the world’s most important collections of drawings by Albrecht Dürer. It holds nearly 140 drawings of Dürer and in this exhibition the central focus will be on his drawn oeuvre rounded out by international loan works that will show itself to be an artistic achievement at least equal to that of his paintings and printed graphic work.Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was one of the strongest artistic and commercial centers in Europe during the 15th and 16th centuries. He was a brilliant writer, painter, and draftsman even though his first and probably greatest artistic impact were in the medium of printmaking. Dürer was mesmerized by Italy and was engaged in the artistic practices and theoretical interests of Italy more than any other northern European artist. He visited the country twice, from 1494 to 1495 and again from 1505 to 1507 where he absorbed firsthand some of the greatest works of the Italian Renaissance, as well as the classical heritage and theoretical writings of the region. Dürer became official court artist to Holy Roman Emperors Maximilian I and his successor Charles V. Dürer even designed and helped execute a range of artistic projects for Charles V. The exhibition will be on view from September 20, 2019 through January 6, 2020 at Albertina, Albertinaplatz 1, 1010 Wien, Austria.For details, visit: www.blouinartinfo.com/galleryguide-venues/755696/museum-overviewClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
