Late Gothic
The Birth of Modernity

01.05.2021 to 05.09.2021

Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie hosts the first comprehensive exhibition in a German-speaking country to focus on late Gothic art.

Inspired by developments in the Netherlands, from the 1430s onwards, artistic means of expression began to change: light and shade, body and space came to be depicted with increasing realism. With advances in printing techniques, these innovations found mass distribution.

Despite their religious function, the images increasingly came to be perceived as works of art, and the artists became known well beyond the boundaries of their local regions. With around 130 objects – including outstanding loans and key works from the holdings of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – the juxtaposition of various artistic genres trace the innovations in the media of the 15th century, allowing audiences to experience the full breadth and diversity of late Gothic art.
