The City as Signifier: Nuremberg in the Nuremberg Chronicle

Join Jeffrey F. Hamburger, exhibition co-curator and the Kuno Francke Professor of German Art & Literature in the Department of the History of Art & Architecture at Harvard University, for a lecture to celebrate the opening of Imperial Splendor: The Art of the Book in the Holy Roman Empire, ca. 800–1500. No illustrated book from the fifteenth century is more famous than the so-called Nuremberg Chronicle, published in the same city in 1493, first in Latin, then in German.
