From the organizers:
This summer, Edinburgh is hosting two exhibitions on Dürer and his contemporaries: Dürer’s Fame and The Northern Renaissance: Dürer to Holbein, offering a unique opportunity to explore the rich holdings of the National Galleries of Scotland and the Royal Collection.
To complement these exhibitions, our joint-organised symposium will explore Northern Renaissance art in context. The talks will focus on Albrecht Dürer – his work, impact and fame – and his German and Netherlandish contemporaries.
Speakers include curators Kate Heard and Lucy Whitaker from the Royal Collection and Dr Tico Seifert, Senior Curator at the Scottish National Gallery. They are joined by Dr Thomas Schauerte, Director of the Albrecht Dürer House and Graphic Collection in Nuremberg; David Taylor, Senior Curator at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery; and Dr Tom Tolley, Senior Lecturer in the History of Art at the University of Edinburgh.
This event offers a great chance to engage with these experts. During the day, you can visit Dürer’s Fame at the Scottish National Gallery and following the symposium, participants are invited to join the speakers at a private view of The Northern Renaissance exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Palace of Holyrood House.
