Durer : Masters of Art

Durer : Masters of Art

Description

Albrecht Durer established his reputation as an artistic genius early in his career. By his mid-twenties, his engravings were being reproduced throughout Europe. This monograph explores the German master's entire life and oeuvre by focusing on the most important of his works. It follows Durer as he travelled throughout Europe, completing commissions for noblemen, kings, emperors, and popes - all the while satisfying his own thirst for knowledge and struggling with the changes brought about by the Reformation. Overflowing with impeccably reproduced images, this book offers full-page spreads of masterpieces as well as highlights of smaller details - allowing the viewer to appreciate every aspect of the artist's technique and output. Chronologically arranged, the book covers important biographical and historic events that reflect the latest scholarship. Additional information includes a list of works, timeline, and suggestions for further reading.
