The Resurrection of Christ
Albrecht Dürer
(German, 1471-1528)
The Resurrection of Christ
from The Small Passion
ca. 1509 - 1511

Selected from the Museum's permanent holdings, this exhibition displayed in the Corner Gallery an impressive collection of works on paper with examples from five centuries and several European countries. Nuremberg was one of the earliest and finest printmaking centers in the Western World - elevating printmaking from craft to art. Innovations of artists such as Michael Wolgemut and Albrecht Dürer showed an unprecedented level of technical virtuosity. Additional highlights included leaves from the Nuremberg Chronicle and the Nuremberg Bible.
