The brilliant and versatile German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) lived in the prosperous city of Nuremberg and is celebrated as one of the finest printmakers of all time. This exhibition of more than one hundred engravings, etchings, and woodcuts from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s collection spans Dürer’s entire career, from his apprenticeship through his death, and highlights the major themes of his art, including religious subjects such as the Passion and the Apocalypse. His lifetime coincides with the advent of the Protestant Reformation, and this exhibition explores how the religious turmoil affected both the artist and his art.
