Spring 2014 exhibition celebrates the flourishing German art world of the 16th century.
October 16, 2013, 7:31 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The National Gallery's spring 2014 exhibition will take a fresh look at German Renaissance paintings that belong to the National Gallery Collection, providing insights into the way these works were perceived in their time and in the recent past, and how they are seen today. Strange Beauty: Masters of the German Renaissance will focus on some of the best-known artists of the period, including Hans Holbein the Younger, Albrecht Durer and Lucas Cranach the Elder.

The exhibition will take place between 19 th February and 11 th May 2014 at the National Gallery Sainsbury Wing. The National Gallery is in Trafalgar Square at the heart of London's West End, surrounded by the city's best sights, restaurants and hotels. If you are planning a trip to London and are in need of a cheap hotel room, look no further than LondonTown.com, which is London's best website for the latest discounts on hotels in London.

Most of the artists featured in the exhibition were extremely famous in their own time, and the exhibition will highlight the ways in which their paintings, drawings and prints were valued in the 16th century for qualities such as expression and inventiveness. The exhibition will also examine the evolution of the perception of German Renaissance art and the reasons why attitudes towards it were mixed in the 19th and early 20th centuries, especially in the context of the National Gallery Collection. While some viewers admired the artists' technical mastery and their embodiment of a perceived German national identity, others saw these works of art as excessive or even ugly particularly when compared to works of the Italian Renaissance.
