Dürer and Beyond: Central European Drawings in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1400–1700

At The Met Fifth Avenue
April 3–September 3, 2012

Exhibition Overview

This exhibition is the first to offer an extensive overview of the Museum's holdings of early Central European drawings, many of which were acquired in the last two decades. An emphasis on works by later sixteenth- and seventeenth-century artists is balanced by a selection of German drawings from the fifteenth and earlier sixteenth century, of which some of the most exceptional ones—including works by Albrecht Dürer—entered the Museum with The Robert Lehman Collection in 1975.
