German art in a new light… The Louvre devotes an exhibition to German artist Albrecht Altdorfer from April 23 to August 3, 2020. A retrospective inviting art enthusiasts to learn more about the German Renaissance, alongside an artist less known than the other masters of his generation.
An exhibition that defines itself as a monography trying to show visitors all “the richness and diversity of Albrecht Altdorfer’s work”. An artist “endowed with a great capacity of formal and iconographic invention, a pioneer in the genres of landscape and architecture”. A genuine artist from the Renaissance this retrospective endeavors to highlight that is “both very original and perfectly aware of the art creations of his contemporaries”.
Note the exhibition is curated by head of collections Hélène Grollemund, curator Séverine Lepape and the Louvre graphic art department curator Olivia Savatier. In other words, the perfect occasion to discover an artist still rather unknown in France, as well as his own vision of the Renaissance you can compare with the very famous European masters… Let’s save the date, friends, shall we?
