On 12th July 1520, seven years before he died, Dürer embarked on a last extensive journey, this time to the Netherlands. The National Gallery is planning an exhibition (March – June 2021) exploring this and Durer's other earlier journeys in this first exhibition for a generation.  He had already travelled extensively in his earlier career, crossing the Alps twice to Venice.  A fascinating journal survives of his last journey as well as two sketchbooks of exquisite silverpoint drawings. The study day will be an opportunity to illuminate Durer's journeys, the places he visited, the patrons and artists he met, as well as the resulting paintings, drawing and prints which this great renaissance artist produced as a result.
