Summer at Clark Art Institute

Anne Leonard Lectures on Durer

By: - Jul 09, 2021

Williamstown, Massachusetts—On Thursday, July 15, Anne Leonard, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs, examines the continuing influence that master print maker Albrecht Dürer has had on generations of artists who have drawn inspiration from his incomparable body of work. This lecture will be presented live over Zoom and Facebook Live at 6 pm.  


Drawing from its extensive holdings of works by—and inspired by—Albrecht Dürer, the Clark presents Dürer & After, with more than forty works spanning Dürer’s career and including examples by a range of copyists, known and anonymous. Running the gamut from meticulous copying to free interpretation and from respectful tribute to outright piracy, the methods and motivations of Dürer’s imitators offer a distinctive lens through which to view his remarkable artistic legacy.

Durer & After is presented in the Eugene V. Thaw Gallery for Works on Paper from July 17 through October 3, 2021. This exhibition is organized by the Clark Art Institute and curated by Anne Leonard, Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs. Generous support for this exhibition is provided by Denise Littlefield Sobel.
