Durer's art: Absolute fidelity to every detail Five full centuries lie between us and the life of Albrecht Durer (1471-1528).

His ability to represent a subject with an absolute fidelity to every detail seemed miraculous to his contemporaries, and still astounds us now: we need only think of his water-colours of plants and animals.

In addition, Durer was the first painter to devote such close attention to the art of the self-portrait.

No artist before him painted as many as he. The works by Durer collected in this book show the full range of this artist s unique genius.
