|Title||Emulation or Imitation: The Case of Dürer vs. Marcantonio Raimondi|
This small-focus show presents a singularly important early stage in the emergence of the concept of the individual artist and his work in the Northern Renaissance. Dürer’s unprecedented lawsuit against the Venetian printmaker Marcantonio Raimondi, who, ca. 1511, copied his series “Life of the Virgin,” spotlights an important historical turning point in which the conception of originality was beginning to emerge as the definition of artistic creativity. Through April 19.
