The Age of Dürer
Marx Reichlich, The Jester ca. 1519-20, Yale University Art Gallery, bequest of Dr. Herbert and Monika Schaefer
Lucas Cranach the Elder, Albrecht Altdorfer, Jörg Breu – a few of the big names found among the contemporaries of Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) active in Austria around 1500 and the decades that followed. In many cases, the works created during the transitional period from Late Gothic to the Renaissance bear witness to a new form of artistic self-conception. The Belvedere is devoting a comprehensive exhibition to this chapter of Austrian art, which thus far has received little attention.
