The Apocalypse: Albrecht D

Collection Display | Gallery 2, Queensland Art Gallery (QAG)

The technical and stylistic innovation of Albrecht Dürer’s woodcut prints illustrating the Revelation of St John revolutionised the graphic arts in Europe and established Dürer’s reputation as the most influential and collected artist of the northern Renaissance. Over 500 years since their publication, they remain some of the most vivid imagery ever created.

Dürer’s imagery is perennially fascinating and his continued relevance and influence is evident in many social and cultural spheres, from contemporary art to heavy metal album covers, from body tattoos to the creations of Dr Seuss.
