The Feast of the Rose Garlands was created during Dürer’s sojourn in Venice in 1506. It was commissioned by German merchants, settled around the commercial center known as the Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice, as the altar painting for their chapel in the parish Church of San Bartolomeo.

On view at the Waldstein Riding School, this exhibition includes paintings, drawings and prints created in connection with The Feast of the Rose Garlands as well as works of Albrecht Dürer and his circle. Approximately one hundred selected works of art attempt to illustrate the character of The Feast of the Rose Garlands in the historical context of European art.
