Dürer ©: Selections from The Sunaert Collection“Dürer ©: Selections from the Sunaert Collection” presents woodcuts and engravings by and after Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) originally belonging to the Belgian painter and collector Adolf Pieter Sunaert (1825-1876). Never exhibited since their donation to the Universiteitsbibliotheek Gent in the late nineteenth century, these prints were objects of fascination both for Dürer’s contemporaries and the following generations of print artists.

Through an exploration of the dynamic relations between origins, copies, and artistic interpretation that animated Renaissance print culture, the exhibition addresses the manifold construction of authorship and authenticity in early modern Europe.

Conceived and realized by dr. Noam Andrews in tandem with students from the graduate seminar Iconology (Spring 2019), Vakgroep Kunst-, Muziek-, en Theaterwetenschappen, Universiteit Gent​
