Press Tour: Imperial Augsburg: Renaissance Prints and Drawings, 1475–1540

The National Gallery of Art presents the first exhibition in the United States to focus on Augsburg's artistic achievements in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. 'Imperial Augsburg: Renaissance Prints and Drawings, 1475–1540' will be on view in the West Building Ground Floor galleries from September 30 through December 31, 2012. The last major exhibition on this subject was mounted more than three decades ago in Augsburg—one of Germany's oldest cities—whose Renaissance heritage has long been eclipsed in America by Albrecht Dürer's Nuremberg.
