Transformation of the World – Masterpieces by Hendrick Goltzius
Augustinermuseum – Haus der Graphischen Sammlung
With his narrative representations and playful new creations, the Dutch engraver and painter Hendrik Goltzius (1558-1617) already made a name for himself during his lifetime. Unlike many of his contemporaries, this all-round talent worked simultaneously as a designer, engraver and publisher. His Roman heroes, goddesses and angels pay homage to the human body and radiate a dynamic force. The show is a co-operation with the Georg-August University Göttingen.
