Art + Poetry: Albrecht Dürer and Victor Hugo

Location: Snite Art Museum - Meet in the atrium

Albrecht Dürer's 1513 engraving Knight, Death, and the Devil has captured the imagination of viewers and artists since its creation. French poet, novelist, and dramatist Victor Hugo wrote an ode to the artist - inspired by this print - in 1837 which he allies himself with Dürer in sharing a visionary outlook.
