The Young Durer: Drawing The Figure

This Courtauld Gallery exhibition concentrates on the German artist's journeyman years (1490-96), during which he travelled widely and was exposed to a range of new influences. The exhibition explores how Albrecht Durer reinvented artistic traditions through an ambitious new approach to the figure rooted in the study of his own body and features outstanding early works by Durer as well as rare drawings and prints by his contemporaries, many of which have never been seen in the United Kingdom.

About Courtauld Institute Gallery

Manet's 'Bar at the Folies-Bergeres', Van Gogh's 'Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear' and Renoir's 'La Loge' are just a few of the celebrated artworks displayed at the Courtauld in the Strand Block of the glorious, 18th century Somerset House. 530 paintings, 7000 drawings and 15,000 prints combine to create one of the most notable collections of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Old Master works on display today.
