Dr. Andrea Bubenik, Associate lecturer in Art History at the University of Queensland, presents "Passion and Persistence in the Prints of Albrecht Drer".
Albrecht Drer (1471-1528) was the most influential and renowned German Renaissance artist, thanks largely to his contributions to the art of printmaking.
Because of Drer, engravings and woodcuts came to be seen as works of art in their own right, and not merely as adjuncts to paintings.
With printmaking came new possibilities for reproduction and distribution, and Drer's art was disseminated in an unprecedented manner.
Exhibiting technical brilliance, freedom of invention, and iconographic complexity, Drer's engravings and woodcuts continue to be among the most widely admired in the history of art.
Dr. Bubenik will explore the themes of passion and persistence in discussion of some of the key prints in Drer's oeuvre.
