Renaissance and Reformation: German Art in the Age of Dürer and Cranach
Don't miss this unique opportunity to view some of the greatest achievements of German Renaissance art in a major exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Coinciding with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Renaissance and Reformation brings to LA key works of German 16th-century art. The period was marked by profound changes in thought, philosophy, science, and religion, which in turn transformed the work of artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Hans Holbein, Mathias Grünwald, Tilman Riemenschneider and a host of others who reflected this new vision of the world in their works. The exhibition brings together over 100 extraordinary works of art from Germany’s three largest museums – the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, and the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen, Munich. You will be able to explore the show with a curator and, in the afternoon, gain behind the scenes access to LACMA's Study Center where you will be able to encounter a selection of artworks ordinarily stored in boxes and drawers, from vintage photographs to Old Master prints.
