The Albertina brings us the perfect opportunity to discover Albrecht Dürer's mastery at drawing. 

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was a painter, engraver and artist at the height of the German Renaissance. Dürer became well known across Europe when he was still in his 20s because of his woodcut prints. He was in touch with the major Italian artists of his time, including RaphaelGiovanni Bellini and Leonardo da Vinci, and from 1512 he  Emperor Maximilian I became his patron. 

Dürer is commemorated by both the Lutheran and Episcopal Churches. With around 140 works, the Albertina has the most important collection of drawings by him, most of which are rarely on display to the public. 

The focus of this collection is his 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.
