The Albertina brings us the perfect opportunity to discover Albrecht Dürer's mastery at drawing.
Albrecht Dürer was a painter, engraver and artist at the height of the German Renaissance. In his time, Germany was most artistically open to the rest of Europe and he was even in conversation with Italian masters of the time such as Raphael or Leonardo da Vinci.
With around 140 works, the Albertina has the most important collection of drawings by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), most of which are rarely displayed to the public. The focus of this collection are the family portraits, animal and plant studies, and head, hand and robe studies. He was by no means the first to do such studies, but his technical, compositional and artistic perfection do set him apart.
The Albertina collection offers, like no other, the ideal starting point to discuss Dürer 's conceptual idea about drawing, and this exhibition is the perfect opportunity to discover the artist's mastery at drawing.
