Literature about Dürer fills library shelves. Does this mean everything has already been said about the artist? Far from it, according to the scholars at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and their international partners in the Early Dürer Project. Their essays deal with the core phenomena of Dürer's early work, ranging from the artist's biography and surroundings to the question of Dürer's role as the archetype of the modern artist. New sociological approaches allow us to interpret Dürer's 'ideal neighborhood' as a source of inspiration for the artist's work, resituating Dürer in the artistic context of his time, at an exciting crossroad between the imitation of traditional painting and the self-conscious renewal of his profession."--Jacket.
