Visit Renaissance and Reformation: German Art in the Age of Dürer and Cranach before it closes on Monday, March 27! Coinciding with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, this exhibition features some of the greatest achievements of German Renaissance art. With paintings, drawings, sculptures, arms and armors, and decorative arts, this exhibition highlights a period (1460–1580) marked by profound changes in thought, philosophy, science, and religion, which in turn transformed the work of many artists of the day, from Albrecht Dürer to Lucas Cranach to Hans Holbein.
Learn how this exhibition was installed at LACMA, read about Martin Luther's impact on modern media culture, consider the differences between Italian and Northern Renaissance paintings, and take a virtual tour of the exhibition with curator Patrice Marandel. For an in-depth dive into themes and works featured in the exhibition, bring home the catalogue, which uses art as a prism through which to consider the religious, social, and political upheavals of the time.
On campus, join docent-led tours of the exhibition, available on March 21 and March 25, and bring the family on March 26 for artist-led workshops and friendly gallery tours and activities inspired by Renaissance and Reformation.
