The collection is drawn from the renowned Hessisches Landesmuseum (Hessian State Museum), Darmstadt, Germany, and is comprised of 100 examples of Dürer’s woodcuts, etchings, and engravings. This exhibition is organized by the Hessisches Landesmuseum, Darmstadt, and toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, D.C. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Mechthild Haas, graphics curator at the Hessisches Landesmuseum.
