Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer revolutionized drawing, painting and printmaking in his native Germany and throughout Europe. That’s why he is often referred to as the Leonardo da Vinci of the North. The Crocker art museum celebrates his works with the show “The Age of Albrecht Dürer: German Drawings from the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris,” which runs through Feb. 14.
On Thursday, Jan. 21, from 6:30–8 p.m. the Crocker will present “Panel Talk: Dürer’s Origin, Dürer’s Time, Dürer’s Legacy.” Join two experts in German Renaissance art—Jeffrey Chipps Smith, from the University of Texas at Austin, and Christiane Andersson from Bucknell University—along with the Crocker’s own curator for the exhibition, William Breazeale, for a wide-ranging conversation about Dürer’s era and influence, and why his art has remained so prominent for more than 500 years.
