Etching of the Renaissance. From Dürer to Brueghel

Exhibition February 12 − May 10, 2020
The emergence of etching at the end of the 15th century, along with its subsequent rapid spread at the beginning of the 16th century, is one of the most important points in art.

Etching was so simple that artists from a wide range of fields were able to create their own engravings - and among the pioneers of this new media were central Renaissance artists such as Albrecht Durer, Parmigianino and Peter Brueghel the Elder.

Exhibition "Etching of the Renaissance"is dedicated to the first 70 years of engravings: from their inception during the time of Dürer to the Brueghel era, in which numerous well-known artists in Germany, Flanders, Italy and France already worked.
