To celebrate the recent acquisition of the German renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer’s seminal woodcut series The Apocalypse (1511), the Museum presents an exhibition featuring these 16 sheets illustrating the book of Revelations.  Additional prints by his contemporaries, including Lucas van Leyden, Urs Graf, and Michael Wolgemut, set the stage for Dürer’s remarkable graphic achievement and examine the impact he had on art making, intellectual pursuits, and art commerce in the sixteenth century.

This important addition to the Snite Museum of Art's collection of old master prints and drawings was acquired with funds provided by the estate of Edith and Dr. Paul J. Vignos Jr. '41.

This exhibition is made possible by the Snite Museum General Endowment.
