Reasons To Be Cheerful ! ! : Exciting Dürer News In Nuremberg ! ! (From ArtDaily.org)
NUREMBERG.- The Germanisches Nationalmuseum is presenting the early work of the most famous German artist. 51 lenders from 12 countries sent 120 of Dürer’s most important works to Nuremberg. The exhibition spans Dürer’s creative period until 1505 when he set off on his second Venetian journey. The oldest work is from 1484 – Self-Portrait from the Albertina in Vienna – and the latest from 1504 – Adoration of the Magi from the Uffizi in Florence. The most outstanding works from Dürer’s early years are here brought together: his selfportraits and portraits of his family and friends, his ambitious nature studies and dramatic narratives, recorded in freely executed drawings and sumptuous panel paintings. Dürer may be experienced as painter and draughtsman as well as designer for craftwork and glass painting in a unique way.
