Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), perhaps the most famous of all German artists, embodies the modern ideal of the Renaissance man--he was a remarkable painter, printmaker, draftsman, designer, theoretician, and even a poet. More is known about his thoughts and his life than about any other Northern European master of his time, since he wrote extensively about himself, his family's history, his travels, and his friends. His woodcuts and engravings were avidly collected and copied across Europe, and they quickly established his reputation as a master. Praised in life and elegized in death by such thinkers as Martin Luther and Erasmus, he served Emperor Maximilian and other leading church and secular princes in the Holy Roman Empire. Although there is a vast specialized literature on the Nuremberg master, This book fills the need for a foundational work that covers the major aspects of his career. The essays included in this book, written by leading scholars from the United States and Germany, provide an accessible, up-to-date examination of Durer's art and person as well as his posthumous fame. The essays address an array of topics, from separate and detailed studies of his paintings, drawings, printmaking, and sculpture, to broader concerns such as his visits to and interactions with Venice and the Netherlands, his personal relationships, and his relationships with other artists. Collectively these stimulating essays explore the brilliance of Durer's creativity and the impact he had on his world, exposing him as an artist fully engaged with the tumultuous intellectual and religious challenges of his time

Dürer by Jeffrey Chipps Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the greatest artist of the Northern European Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was a pioneer both in his artworks and in his artistic professionalism. By the age of 24 he had a flourishing print-making business and his virtuoso woodcuts and engravings ensured his fame across Europe. He also produced an extraordinarily prolific output in other media, which encompasses riveting portraits of key figures of the time and self-portraits (he was the first artist north of the Alps to paint a self-portrait), grand altarpieces, meticulous studies of animals and nature, and the first landscapes treated as stand-alone subjects. In this comprehensive introduction and insightful reappraisal, Jeffrey Chipps Smith looks at the work of the brilliant artist in the context of the historical and cultural ferment of pre- and post-Reformation Europe, untangling the myths about Dürer's life and exploring his artistic processes."--Page 4 of cover
The early Dürer by Albrecht Drer( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and Italian and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is devoted to Albrecht Dürer's early art and the circumstances of the young painter's life that enabled his unique work. 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

Albrecht Dürer and the Venetian Renaissance by Katherine Crawford Luber( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Albrecht Durer and the Venetian Renaissance examines twenty-five paintings by the German artist in an effort to reevaluate his relationship to contemporary Italian art and his status as a painter. 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
