Strange Beauty: Masters Of The German Renaissance at The National Gallery Free

Overview

The National Gallery takes a fresh look at German Renaissance paintings with their stunning exhibition Strange Beauty: Masters of the German Renaissance

Providing a clear insight as to how these paintings were regarded at the time of their creation, in the recent past and how they are viewed today, the display is as beautiful as it is educational. Focusing on the best known artists of the period, discover the ways in which their paintings, drawings and prints were valued in the 16th century for qualities such as expression and inventiveness. 

The other aim of the show is to detail the evolution of the perception of German Renaissance art, looking specifically at how it was perceived in the 19th and 20th centuries. While many admired the artists’ technical skills, many others saw them as excessive and even ugly. This is the perfect opportunity to make your own mind up on the ongoing debate.
