Dürer's Journeys: Travels of a Renaissance Artist

13 February – 16 May 2021

Location: Sainsbury Wing

The first major UK exhibition of German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer in nearly 20 years.

Through paintings, drawings, prints, and letters, this exhibition follows Dürer’s travels across Europe, bringing to life the artist himself, and the people and places he visited.

Charting his journeys to the Alps, Italy, Venice and the Netherlands, the exhibition will explore how Dürer’s travels sparked an exchange of ideas with Netherlandish and Italian Renaissance artists, fuelled his curiosity and creativity, and increased his fame and influence across Europe.  

'Dürer’s Journeys' will bring together loans from museums and private collections across the world, including the artist's striking ‘Madonna and Child’ (c. 1496/1499) from the National Gallery of Art, Washington, never before seen in the UK.  

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery in partnership with the Suermondt-Ludwig Museum, Aachen
