to Aug 11 | ART EXHIBIT | Albrecht Dürer: St. Jerome Drawings from the Albertina Museum | Santos | 6 – 10€
Albrecht Dürer was a German painter mostly working around 500 years ago. He made many paintings which, in turn, made history in the world of art.
One such painting is Saint Jerome in His Study.
Albrecht completed said piece in 1521. Then, while on a trip to Antwerp, he gave it to the secretary of a Portuguese factory as a gift. And so today, St Jerome hangs in the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga right here in Lisbon, continuing to make history.
However, Albrecht had also made four preliminary drawings for St Jerome, which somehow ended up in the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
That is, until recently.
For the next two months, said drawings are in Portugal for the first time, face to face with the iconic final work for which they served as inspiration.
Thus, you are invited to witness art history in the making, as well as to an up-close and personal study of Albrecht’s creative process.
