Albrecht Dürer was more than just the most gifted artist of the Northern Renaissance. Thanks to his mastery of printmaking, he was a one-man industry; his ability to produce multiple copies of his images enabled his fame to spread across Europe. This major new exhibition of his work features a selection of his prints from the Gallery archives, including the iconic Melancholy, The Knight, Death and the Devil and St Jerome in his Study, plus paintings and drawings by Dürer himself and artists inspired by him.

Dürer’s Fame21 Jul 2011
Tribute to the German woodcut and engravings master Albrecht Durer
German handball star Pascal Hens gazes out from a black-and-white poster, his torso naked, gaze serious, his pose one of self-deification. This is enhanced further by a tattoo on his stomach of two disembodied hands clasped together as if in prayer.
