Albrecht Dürer. How cold I will be away from the sun…

The Palazzo Ducale Museum Complex of Mantua, in the exhibition spaces on the ground floor of Castello di San Giorgio, hosts an exhibition devoted to Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) and to his relationship with Italian art, in particular, with Mantegna’s etchings. The exhibition is curated by Johannes Ramharter, a major art historian, and by Peter Assmann, the director of Palazzo Ducale. By comparing Dürer’s etchings with those of the Italian artists who influenced his work, the exhibition showcases about 70 works, including precious pieces on loan from Vienna’s Albertina Museum and Kupferstichkabinett. On show is also a bronze sculpture by Leonardo Da Vinci representing a horse and kept at Budapest’s Szepmüveszeti Muzeum.
