The period of 1480–1660 represents one of the high points in German art, spanning the careers of artists such as Martin Schongauer, Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach the Elder, and Hans Holbein the Younger. Because different styles of drawing developed in the various regions of present-day Germany and Switzerland, this exhibition of works from the Getty Museum's permanent collection is organized by region—the Middle and Upper Rhine, Switzerland, Nuremberg, and Saxony. The exhibition explores the drawings' wide range of functions and captivating subject matter, including mercenary soldiers and scenes of courtly love. It also presents important new scholarship in the field that has been accomplished during the past decades.
