Albrecht Dürer: Apocalypse and Other Masterworks from Indiana University Collections is the first-ever exhibition to survey the university's impressive holdings by this important and perennially popular Old Master. Drawing on the collections of both the Eskenazi Museum of Art and the Lilly Library, Albrecht Dürer: Apocalypse and Other Masterworks from Indiana University Collections will feature engravings, etchings, and woodcuts spanning the length of Dürer's career, as well as early printed books illustrated and, in one case, authored by the artist. A small but revealing choice of works by sixteenth-century copyists and imitators rounds out this selection, affording additional insights into Dürer's powerful influence and legacy.
An in-depth feature essay to accompany the exhibition, written by museum graduate assistant Leah Marie Chizek, is available on Collections Online.
Curated by museum graduate assistant Leah Marie Chizek under the mentorship of Nanette Esseck Brewer, the Eskenazi Museum of Art's Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper. The exhibition is supported in part by the Anthony J. and Rhonda L. Moravec Museum of Art Endowment.
