Albrecht Durer, Hardback Book

Albrecht Durer Hardback



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.

Durer's influence was both international and intergenerational-indeed Picasso claimed to have been inspired by the 16th-century artist.

Reproduced in stunning detail and including illustrations of Durer's most famous prints and drawings, a catalog raisonne 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 Du rer was commercially astute long before today's generation of self-promoting and financially-savvy artists.

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 raisonne of the paintings.

Drawing on in-depth research, this book reveals the truth behind Durer and his art.
