- Full Description
Durer’s influence was both international and intergenerational—Picasso claimed to have been inspired by the 16th-century artist. Reproduced in stunning detail and including his most famous prints and drawings, a catalog raisonné of his paintings, and biographical research, this book presents a Durer for the 21st century. Producing more self-portraits than any other artist of his day; mass marketing his best-selling prints; even inventing his own monogram logo; Albrecht Durer was WAY ahead of his time. And he was a brilliant artist!
Now available in a new edition, this lavishly illustrated volume draws on the latest research to present an exciting new interpretation of Albrecht Durer, both as a man and as an artist. Albrecht Durer’s prints and drawings have inspired hundreds of artists, both during his life and after his death. Yet his talent as a painter and colorist and his enthusiasm for the scientific world have not been widely appreciated.
There are 55 extant Durer paintings, of which 17 are in dispute. Using scientific research, this book puts all arguments to bed resulting in the definitive catalog raisonné of the paintings. Drawing on in-depth research, this book reveals the truth behind Durer and his art.
