This selection of Northern Renaissance paintings and prints, from a major private Charleston collection, introduces a world of intensely, and sometimes disturbingly, vivid imagery. Created in the Low Countries of Europe and Germany between 1440 and 1590, this is a world of contradictions and unease-whether the subject is a troubled Virgin Mary contemplating her young son, a menacing group of malevolent figures inspired by Hieronymus Bosch, or Albrecht DÃ¼rer's famous scenes from Revelations. In the turbulent era of the Renaissance and the beginning of the Reformation in Northern Europe, viewers found their hopes, desires and anxieties mirrored in images of those inspiring pious belief or depicting fantastic visions of good and evil. Guest curated by Larry Goedde, Ph.D., professor of art history, University of Virginia.
