“Albrecht Dürer was perhaps the most accomplished artist of the Northern Renaissance (…) He was also, as a new exhibition reveals, an inveterate traveler whose journeys influenced his ambitions, his art and his impact.” (Wall Street Journal)
“Dürer was undoubtedly the greatest artist of the northern Renaissance, but it is usually Italian artists (...) who now hog the limelight. The Aachen and London shows should do much to highlight the German master’s importance and sheer inventiveness.” (The Art Newspaper)
The Suermondt Ludwig Museum is affectionately referred to as Aachen's own "Salon". The Villa Cassalette, a magnificent city palace dating from the 19th century, houses collections of priceless works of art. Its collection of medieval sculptures is superb, and one of the most prominent collections in all of Germany. And it also boasts an excellent range of late-Gothic German and Dutch panel paintings as well as works of Dutch Masters of the Baroque era. In addition, the Villa Cassalette is home to a small but exquisite collection of 19th-century and early 20th-century paintings, a gallery of prints and drawings and a comprehensive collection of arts and crafts items, on show in the "Civic Cabinet of Arts and Curios".
