Without a doubt, Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was one of the most important and iconic figures of the German Renaissance with enormous influence across Northern Europe even during his own lifetime. His prolific body of work encompasses theory, books, altarpieces, portraits, watercolors, woodcut prints, but he is perhaps most admired today for his engravings, a technique that he preferred and perfected.
Today, the Civic Museums of Bassano del Grappa in Italy conserve a significant and comprehensive collection of some 214 of his etchings. It is known as the Remondini Collection, and is considered by many experts as one of the most complete collections in the world in terms of size and quality, second only to the Dürer collection at the Albertina Museum in Vienna. Thus it is indeed a rare, and very special occasion to offer to audiences abroad the opportunity to view an extensive selection of these superb masterworks in this medium.
