Albrecht Durer (1471 - 1528), probably the most famous German artist of all time, not only excelled in painting and drawing but was also the most successful graphic artist on history. Durer was also the first author to write on art theory in the German language. Peter Strieder examines Durer's personality and influence, his time and environment; his encounters with people, places and ideas. Also discussed are Durer's techniques and theories of art as well as the subject matters of his works. A beautifully illustrated book. Book in near fine condition.
