Providing a technical analysis of these works, Katherine Crawford Luber explains how Durer appropriated Venetian techniques and suggests that the artist was engaged in the exploration of an atmospheric, coloristic perspective. Luber also demonstrates how the Venetian alternative to "scientific" perspective was integrated not only in Durer's late paintings but also in his later graphic oeuvre, which necessitates a reassessment of the critical partition of his painted and graphic work. Emphasizing Durer's careful working methods, Luber argues that technique is an interpretable and critically important aspects of artworks that should be integrated into mainstream art historical studies."--Jacket.
