Dürer (1471–1528) is widely considered the greatest German artist. While his paintings were prized, his most influential works were drawings, watercolors, engravings, and woodcuts. The Albertina Museum in Vienna, Austria, lends to the Gallery 118 of its finest watercolors, drawings, and prints by Dürer for an unprecedented exhibition that can only be seen in Washington and that also includes 19 closely related drawings and prints from the Gallery's own collection.
