Exhibition Albrecht Altdorfer (before 1485–1538)

from April 23, 2020 to August 3, 2020

Painter, draftsman, and printmaker active in Regensburg, Albrecht Altdorfer (about 1480–1538) was a major artist of the German Renaissance. Nevertheless, the artist remains little known compared to other masters of his generation.

This mainly monographic exhibition aims to demonstrate the rich diversity of Albrecht Altdorfer’s body of work. He was prolifically inventive both in form and choice of subject and a pioneer of the landscape and architectural genres. The exhibition will emphasize his status as a Renaissance artist – at once highly original and thoroughly aware of the work of his contemporaries.

Organized by:

Hélène Grollemund, Séverine Lepape, and Olivia Savatier, Musée du Louvre.
