ArtBeat: The Strange World of Albrecht Dürer @ The Clark, Williamstown
Opening Sunday, November 14 at The Clark in Williamstown is “The Strange World of Albrecht Dürer”, a world populated by monsters, witches, hybrid animals, and marauding soldiers. Drawn entirely from the Clark’s extensive holdings, the display will feature approximately seventy-five works by the celebrated German Renaissance painter, printmaker and writer.
The prints are organized into five themes – The Apocalypse, Symbolic Space, Battle and Anguish, Gender Anxiety, and Enigma – that draw parallels to contemporary society and strive to illustrate both his artistic vision and his historic contributions to the understanding of artistic perspective and proportion.
The exhibit is on display through March 13, 2011.
