Dürer and Cranach. Art and Humanism in Renaissance Germany
is a survey
of German art between the late 15th century and the first half of the 16th
century. Among the aims of the exhibition, which focuses on the two
greatest artists of the day, Albrecht Dürer and Lucas Cranach the Elder,
is that of emphasising the key role that artistic images played in a series
of contemporary events which would ultimately bring about profound
changes in art, religion and politics. The exhibition is divided into two
sections, which are displayed in its two venues: The World of Artists
the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, and A World in Conflict
Pride and Melancholy: an image of the German artist
