Strange Beauty: Masters of the German Renaissance

19 February 2014 - 11 May 2014
A new exhibition at the National Gallery will highlight leading artists of the German Renaissance while also examining different conceptions of beauty and changing reactions to the creative time period.

A number of key works have been loaned to the National Gallery to complete this exhibition, and masterpieces by artists the likes of Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein the Younger and Lucas Cranach the Elder are certain to be exhibition highlights. In addition to investigating the expressiveness and technical prowess that underlie the German Renaissance, the show will also explore changing ideas of attractiveness across the ages, as well as the controversial reception of German art in Britain during the 19th and 20th centuries.
