Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) was a German painter, engraver, printmaker, mathematician, and theorist from Nuremberg. His high-quality woodcuts established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance ever since. His vast body of work includes altarpieces, religious works, numerous portraits and self-portraits, and copper engravings. In this volume, numerous large-sized illustrations showcase the artist’s oeuvre, and authoritative texts illustrate the decisive stages in the artist’s life and in the development of his work, explaining their significance in the context of his time and for the following generations of artists.
