The Life of the Virgin: The Flight into Egypt, 1504, by Albrecht Dürer (Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute)

Albrecht Dürer: Life of the Virgin

October 9, 2004 - January 2, 2005

The German painter and printmaker Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was one of the great masters of the Northern Renaissance. In 1511 Dürer published his Life of the Virgin series, which consists of twenty woodcuts that depict various episodes throughout the Virgin Mary's life. Drawing from the Clark's exceptional collection that includes a virtually complete representation of Dürer's vast corpus of engravings, woodcuts, and etchings, the exhibition also included other images of the Virgin and Child by Marcantonio Raimondi, an important printmaker of the Italian Renaissance. This show was mounted in conjunction with the Medieval Mystery exhibition.
