An exhibition of Albrecht Dürer prints has opened at the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh. Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was probably the most important artist of the Northern Renaissance. His output included designs for stained glass.
The exhibition shows a selection of prints, drawings and paintings from the National Galleries of Scotland’s collection, including the iconic prints Melancholy, Saint Jerome in his Study and Knight, Death and the Devil.
As well as featuring a selection of Dürer’s work, the exhibition also includes contemporary and later copies of his work, shown alongside imitations and a likely forgery, as well as portraits and works that reflect Dürer’s art.
The exhibition will close on 11th October 2011. Admission is free. For more information visit the National Gallery Website.
