In the 15th century, the Flemish Primitives were the source of a veritable artistic revolution in Europe. Talented painters like Jan van Eyck, with his genius for detail, revolutionised painting with their new techniques. Their influence spread very rapidly and they inspired numerous painters, including Albrecht Dürer, painter, draftsman and printmaker.
Van Eyck and Dürer are the absolute masters of the period 1420-1530. This exhibition brings together for the first time their works and those of their contemporaries. Painting and other artistic disciplines reflect the interaction between the Flemish Primitives and the artists of Central Europe. The exhibition brings together masterpieces from major collections in Europe and the United States.
With major works by Jan Baegert, Dieric Bouts, Hans Burgkmair the Elder, Robert Campin, Gerard David, Albrecht Dürer, Jost Haller, Hans Holbein the Elder, Johan Koerbecke, Stephan Lochner, Quentin Massys, Conrat Meit, Hans Memling, Joachim Patinir, Hans Pleydenwurff, Tilmann Riemenschneider, Martin Schongauer, Veit Stoss, Hugo van der Goes, Rogier van der Weyden, Jan van Eyck, Israhel van Meckenem, Michael Wolgemut and more.
