Book Overview
Now available in a new edition, this lavishly illustrated volume draws on the latest research to present an exciting new interpretation of Albrecht Dürer, both as a man and as an artist. Albrecht Dürer'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. Dürer'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 Dürer's most famous prints and drawings, a catalog raisonné of his paintings, and biographical research, this book presents a Dürer 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 Dürer was commercially astute long before today's generation of self-promoting and financially-savvy artists. There are 55 extant Dürer 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 Dürer and his art.
