The Northern Renaissance: Dürer to Holbein

This exhibition runs from Thu, 24th Jan 2013 to Sun, 14th Apr 2013

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 5th Mar 2013

The 15th and 16th centuries were a time of dramatic change in Northern Europe. Monarchs vied for territorial power, religious reformers questioned the central tenets of the church and scholars sought greater understanding of their world. Against this backdrop, artists produced works of extraordinarily diverse subject matter and superb technical skill.

This exhibition brings together over 100 works by the greatest Northern European artists of the period. Among the highlights are prints and drawings by Albrecht Dürer, mythological paintings by Lucas Cranach the Elder, and preparatory drawings by Hans Holbein the Younger displayed alongside the finished oil portraits.

Cost: £9.25 (for an annual pass)
