It’s the first extremely important exhibit that the city dedicates to this most famous German artist, who knew how to integrate Renaissance artistic grace with then-modern scientific and mathematical research. Considered the most important artist of the German Renaissance, Dürer had a precocious talent which, together with his continuous curiosity, lead him to undertake numerous trips in Europe, exponentially enriching his visual baggage.
In particular, his trip to Italy brought him close to the Renaissance, to the discovery of classical art, to perspectival ability and to precision in rendering anatomy. Like Leonardo da Vinci, Dürer focussed more and more on a realistic representation of the natural world, which he always described with a minute attention to detail worthy of an animal behaviorist and a botanist. Woods, landscapes, meadows inhabited by animals become the ambiances in which mythological scenes, sacred iconography and genre scenes are inserted with an unparalleled originality.
