Artist in Focus: Dürer's Journeys to Italy

Monday 19th April 6.00pm

Join us for a live, event lecture in which we celebrate the work of the great German Renaissance artist, Albrecht Durer. Durer made two important trips to Italy, and today we will explore the impact of the Italian Renaissance on his work, and how he in turn influenced the work of many Italian artists, from Raphael to Bronzino and from Carpaccio to Titian. The lecture will relate to the National Gallery's exhibition Dürer's Journeys, which will now open in November.

This is a live-streamed talk at 6.00pm BST given by lecturer and Art History in Focus director Siân Walters. Tune in from anywhere in the world to watch live, or enjoy a recorded version of the lecture which can be accessed for up to 24 hours afterwards. For those who are unable to participate live, you will automatically be sent a recording soon after the end of the session. Please note, the recording is only available to those who have not been able to participate live, and it is not possible to purchase a recording after booking has closed.

The lecture will last approximately one hour including Q&A.  Please refer to the Further Information panel below.

Bookings close the day before the event is streamed.
