Durer and After

07/17/2021 - 10/03/2021

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Due to his fame and skill, Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) has long attracted imitators and interpreters- some with honorable motives, others intent on deception. Some reproductions use the copyist’s signature, while others have kept his famous monogram. Still, other “Dürer-esque” examples capitalize on the master’s success by closely mimicking his compositions or linear style. The Clark’s extensive Dürer and after-Dürer holdings offer a unique opportunity to assess his centuries-long legacy.
