The painter and printmaker Albrecht Dürer is one of the most important figures of the German Renaissance. Join Dr Matthew S Champion, Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Melbourne, as he considers the astonishing proliferation of measurement devices in Albrecht Dürer’s famous print work Melencolia I. What does thinking about the making, meaning, and use of these objects in renaissance Nuremberg reveal about Dürer’s landmark engraving?

A suite of etchings by Raymond Arnold and Ian Westacott produced in direct response to Albrecht Dürer’s master engraving, Melencolia (1514) will be on display from Saturday 3 August in Double Vision—Mapping Dürer in a Time of Crisis: Raymond Arnold and Ian Westacott.
