Discover the early figure drawings of the great German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer.

The Young Dürer concentrates on the artist’s journeyman years (c. 1490-96), during which he travelled widely and was exposed to a range of new influences.


The exhibition explores how Dürer reinvented artistic traditions through an ambitious new approach to the figure rooted in the study of his own body.

Don’t miss your chance to see outstanding early works by Dürer as well as rare drawings and prints by his contemporaries, many of which have never been seen in the United Kingdom.
