From Renaissance to Resistance: The Art of Germany
German art has often been overlooked and neglected. This is particularly the case for the artworks produced during the middle ages and Renaissance.
Yet Germany has an extremely rich and varied tradition in the history of art; from precise Renaissance prints, to romantic paintings imbued with beauty and mystery, to the tumultuous period of the Third Reich, where art was distorted into a tool of terror. We’ll explore the German ‘Greats’: Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein the Younger, Lucas Cranach the Elder, Stefan Lochner, Max Liebermann, Max Beckmann, and Caspar David Friedrich. Expect to be bombarded with artworks that are opulent and beautiful but also those that are powerful and thought-provoking!
