Albrecht Altdorfer, a German Renaissance Master
This exhibition has been postponed from October 1, 2020 to January 4, 2021.
Painter, draftsman, and printmaker active in Regensburg, Albrecht Altdorfer (about 1480–1538) was a major artist of the German Renaissance. Nevertheless, the artist is less renowned than other masters of his generation, such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach and Hans Baldung Grien. The first of its kind in France, and organized in close cooperation with Vienna’s Albertina Museum, this exhibition aims to acquaint the public with the rich diversity of Albrecht Altdorfer’s body of work—which includes paintings, drawings and prints—in the context of the German Renaissance.
