6:30 - 8 PM
Albrecht Dürer (1471 – 1528), a key figure of the German Renaissance, had a profound influence on artists not only of his own time but for countless generations of artists after him. In celebration of Dürer and the exhibition The Age of Albrecht Dürer: German Drawings from the École des Beaux Arts, join two experts in the German Renaissance – Jeffrey Chipps Smith, from the University of Texas at Austin; Christiane Andersson from Bucknell University, along with the Crocker’s own curator for the exhibition, William Breazeale – for a lively and wide-ranging conversation about Dürer, his era and influence, and why Dürer’s art has remained so prominent for more than 500 years.
