Dürer & Cranach
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 at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, and A World in Conflict at Fundación Caja Madrid.
