In connection with the new long-term exhibition, In Word and Deed: Five Centuries of Religious Art, the MOA will showcase original works on paper in the Print Study Room on select dates for open viewing and study. Woodcut prints from the Large Passion series by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) will be on view September 28 – October 2 from 10 AM to 4 PM each day.
One of the greatest artists of the Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) refined the woodcut medium. The son of a goldsmith, Durer mastered traditional techniques to produce innovative compositions that reflect the era of Reformation and redefined the art of northern Europe.
