Among the most extraordinary works in the Clark's collection is the 1521 set of sketches by German Renaissance genius Albrecht Dürer. A keen observer of nature, Dürer used his sketchbooks to capture foreign landscapes during his travels south and north from his native Nuremburg, Germany, as well as exotic animals held in the rare private zoos of his age. Kathleen Morris, Marx Director of Collections and Exhibitions and Curator of Decorative Arts, leads a close examination of Albrecht Dürer’s drawing of exotic animals and landscapes, as well as related prints.
