Strange Beauty: Masters of the German Renaissance

The National Gallery displays its collection of German renaissance paintings.

The exhibition highlights the evolution of works by important German renaissance artists such as Hans Holbein the Younger, Albrecht Durer and Lucas Cranach the Elder.

The National Gallery contrasts how these paintings were perceived when they were painted in the 16th century with attitudes towards them in the 19th century, and also how they are viewed today.

Until the early 20th century some viewers of the German Renaissance works at the National Gallery were critical of the paintings which they considered excessive or even ugly.

The exhibition is held in collaboration with the University of York.

Daily 10.00-18.00 Fri 10.00-21.00
