Opening Lecture: Dürer & After
Thursday, July 15, 2021
6:00 PM–7:00 PM
In conjunction with the opening of Dürer & After
, exhibition curator Anne Leonard, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, examines the inspiration that artists of Albrecht Dürer’s time—and continuing long afterwards—found in his incomparable print corpus. Running the gamut from meticulous copying to free interpretation and from respectful tribute to outright piracy, the methods and motivations of Dürer’s imitators offer a distinctive lens through which to view his remarkable artistic legacy.
