Art of Germany

Andrew Graham-Dixon begins his exploration of German art by looking at the rich and often neglected art of the German Middle Ages and Renaissance. He visits Cologne Cathedral, which encapsulates the varied and often contradictory character of German art. In Munich he gets to grips with the earliest paintings of the Northern Renaissance, the woodcuts of Albrecht Durer and the cosmic visions of the painter Albrecht Altdorfer. Andrew also tours the Bavarian countryside, discovering the little-known treasures of German limewood sculpture. episode 1.
