    Painter, draftsman, and printmaker active in Regensburg, Albrecht Altdorfer (about 1480–1538) was a major artist of the German Renaissance. Nevertheless, the artist is less renowned than other masters of his generation, such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach and Hans Baldung Grien. The first of its kind in France, and organized in close cooperation with Vienna’s Albertina Museum, this exhibition aims to acquaint the public with the rich diversity of Albrecht Altdorfer’s body of work—which includes paintings, drawings and prints—in the context of the German Renaissance.

    Closely connected to humanist circles, Altdorfer was at once a highly original artist, prolifically inventive both in form and choice of subject, and thoroughly aware of the work of his German and Italian contemporaries. Arranged chronologically and by theme, the exhibition features sections devoted to major works commissioned by Emperor Maximilian, as well as to gold and silver smithery, and the two genres pioneered by the artist—landscape and architecture.

    Organized by:

    Hélène Grollemund and Olivia Savatier Sjöholm, Musée du Louvre, and Séverine Lepape, Musée de Cluny.
