Nowhere else are the changes in the universal language of form more evident than in the development of the ornament. Starting with Albrecht Dürer’s famous Knots series, this exhibition unites around 100 precious prints and ornamented objects from the 15th to 18th century. It traces the history and development of the ornament as an art form. The exhibition is a cooperative project with the Herzog Anton Ulrich-Museum in Braunschweig.
