Dürer’s Prints and the Islamic East with Susan Dackerman

Friday, October 27th, 2023

2:00PM ET

"Durer's Prints and the Islamic East" will explore three of the artist’s most enigmatic print projects: the engraved Sea Monster, woodcut Knots, and etched Landscape with Cannon. Dürer’s prints demonstrate his knowledge of the politics, trade, and religion of the Mamluk and Ottoman Empires, much of which has been forgotten over the past half century.

Susan Dackerman is an art historian and curator who has held posts at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Harvard Art Museums, Getty Research Institute, and Stanford University. Her exhibitions and catalogues include Painted Prints: The Revelation of Color in Northern Renaissance and Baroque Engravings, Etchings, and Woodcuts, (Baltimore Museum of Art, 2002); Prints and the Pursuit of Knowledge in Early Modern Europe, (Harvard Art Museums, 2011); and Corita Kent and the Language of Pop, (Harvard Art Museums, 2015); as well as Jasper Johns: A Catalogue Raisonné of the Monotypes, with Jennifer Roberts, (Matthew Marks Gallery and Yale University Press, 2017). She currently lives in Los Angeles and recently completed the book, Dürer’s Knots: Early European Print and the Islamic East (Princeton University Press, 2024).

This program was hosted by the IFPDA Print Fair 2023 on-site at the Javits Convention Center.
