Dürer’s Journeys

Travels of a Renaissance Artist (Illustrated Talk)

Dr Imogen Tedbury Curator of Art (pre-1800), Royal Museums, Greenwich (previously Simon Sainsbury Curatorial Fellow, National Gallery)

We preview this much-delayed National Gallery exhibition (not now opening until November) in the company of Dr Imogen Tedbury, a curator of the Dürer exhibition.

Albrecht Dürer undertook several journeys throughout his life – to the Alps, Italy, Venice and the Netherlands. These travels fuelled his curiosity and increased his fame and influence across Europe. Through paintings, drawings, prints and letters, this exhibition follows Dürer on his journeys, offering insights into his artistic practice and his exchange of ideas with Netherlandish and Italian Renaissance artists, as well as the nature of travel circa 1500.

Bringing together loans from across the world, including many works never seen in the UK before, this is the first major exhibition of Dürer’s work in this country for nearly 20 years

Imogen Tedbury is an art historian and curator. Her PhD from the Courtauld Institute of Art explored the reception of art from Siena. She has worked at the Courtauld Gallery, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Royal Holloway Picture Gallery and the National Gallery, where she worked on the major international exhibition Dürer’s Journeys. 


The event is expected to last approximately 60 min.
