An exhibition missed at the beginning of the year - "The Northern Renaissance: Dürer to Holbein" was at the Queen's Gallery till 14 April. This review, with many images, fills the gap; it includes larger versions of these Dürer portraits - I love how carefully he draws (and paints) hair, fur, and cloth -
