The Young Durer: Drawing The FigureThis Courtauld Gallery exhibition concentrates on the German artist's journeyman years (1490-96), during which he travelled widely and was exposed to a range of new influences. The exhibition explores how Albrecht Durer reinvented artistic traditions through an ambitious new approach to the figure rooted in the study of his own body and features outstanding early works by Durer as well as rare drawings and prints by his contemporaries, many of which have never been seen in the United Kingdom.
