Albrecht Dürer is the most significant and admired artist of the northern Renaissance. Tracing his work and influence from his earliest career to his powerful posthumous role within German culture, this richly illustrated book surveys all of the artist's best-known prints as well as numerous drawings and watercolors.
The catalogue of a greatly anticipated exhibition of Dürer's work in England--including loans of many precious works rarely seen by the public--the volume features 85 color and 267 black-and-white illustrations. It follows Dürer's career from his first work in the medieval tradition of Martin Schongauer, through his Italian education in the classical tradition, to his sophisticated development of the woodcut and engraving techniques that changed the history of printmaking. The book examines Dürer's long-lived influence, from the obsession of artists and collectors with his work during the late sixteenth century to the iconic status he acquired amid the rise of German nationalism in the nineteenth. It considers how the popularity of his images migrated into a range of materials as diverse as porcelain and banknotes. This assessment of his art and legacy concludes with a contemplation of Dürers famous print, Melancholia, written by the Nobel Prize-winning German novelist Günter Grass, himself a printmaker.
Offering a much-needed fresh look at the work of a major Renaissance artist, this handsome book is certain to deepen the broad international appreciation that Dürer's work already enjoys.

ISBN 714126330 N/D 9780691114934 Testo in Inglese. When Renaissance humanists in the north set out to elevate Germany's reputation in eyes of the cultured world (Germans had long been considered "savage drunkards.responsible for the destruction of ancient Rome"), Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) seemed to be "a natural candidate to represent the visual side of this cultural revival in the north," argues German Renaissance scholar Bartrum. Within a few pages, one can see why. Dürer's images of animals and angels, as well as his ongoing task of self-portraiture, remain accomplishments of the highest artistic order, at once technically incredible and emotionally deep. This copiously illustrated, exhaustively annotated catalogue for a new show at the British Museum examines the entirety of Dürer's career, along with his diverse posthumous legacy in mediums from porcelain to banknotes. Perhaps the most significant artist of the Northern Renaissance (this catalogue is confident of the fact), Dürer emerges not only as a master draftsman, printmaker, even watercolorist, but also a charismatic friend and booster of the German arts.
