Albrecht DU+00FCrer was a prolific painter, draughtsman, printmaker, and writer. Now considered by many scholars the greatest of all German artists, he not only executed paintings and drawings of the highest quality but also made a major contribution to the development of printmaking, especially engraving, and to the study of anthropometry. This fully illustrated Grove Art Essentials title explores DU+00FCrer's life and work, delving into his working methods, character, personality, and theoretical writings, with an exploration of the critical reception and posthumous reputation that have made him an enduring fixture of the art historical cannon.
