Unequaled in his artistic and technical execution of woodcuts and engravings, 16th-century German artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) revolutionized the art of printmaking. The exhibition Dürer’s Women: Images of Devotion & Desire features over fifty of his impressions from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s distinguished collection of Dürer’s prints and considers the artist’s multivalent depictions of women over the course of his career. Exhibit is on display Sunday, June 22, 2014 to Sunday, September 28, 2014. The Cleveland Public Library collection holds many items about this remarkable artist.
A skull, a devil and a mandrake root hint that there might be more than initially meets the eye in Durer's engraving of Four Naked Women.
