63621 A Young Girl of Cologne  A Young Girl of Cologne   1520 Silverpoint, 129 x 190 mm Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna This is a leaf from the sketchbook of the trip to the Lowlands. The legend reads: "awff dem rin mein Weib pey poparti" (on the Rhine, my wife at Boppard). Thus the drawing was made on the boat in July 1520. It gives the best (at least the best preserved) picture of D?rer's wife in her later years; with her cold protruding eyes and the domineering lines at the corners of her mouth, she does not look particularly lovable. Her juxtaposition with the young girl, whose coiffure is labeled "kolnisch gepend" (Cologne girl's headdress) by the artist, is certainly only accidental here, but is nevertheless not without analogies in the context of the sketches on this journey.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: A Young Girl of Cologne and D?rer's Wife Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

The important element for D?rer was not the mere representation of the activity, but the basic Italian method of rendering articulation of the body. D?rer allowed himself freedom in individual details. He was surely not able to borrow from his original the manner in which the modeling lines follow the form, and the contour also has become gnarled in D?rer's fashion. The rear view of the male nude recurs in the engraving "Jealousy.'Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Abduction of a Woman Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

This pen drawing was created immediately before the copper engraving and concentrates entirely on the depiction and three-dimensional structure of the male and female nudes. The body posture of the two figures shown here is already identical down to the last detail with that of the copper engraving.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Adam and Eve Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

63725 Alliance Coat of Arms  Alliance Coat of Arms   1490 Oil on panel, 47 x 39 cm Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence The picture shows the rear view of the Portrait of Albrecht D?rer the Elder. The painted variant on the alliance coat of arms of the D?rer and Holper families, a so-called speaking coat of arms, is also depicted in a woodcut dating from 1523. It forms the back side of D?rer's first portrait of his father in 1490. The family's coat of arms depicts an open barn door on the left, which was presumably a symbol of the family name. The name means the same as "T?rer," the German translation of "Ajto" (door), their place of origin Ajtos near Gyula, the capital of the B?k?s district.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Alliance Coat of Arms of the D?rer and Holper Families Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : other

The waterfront is seen from an elevation; the pictorial technique is lively and bold. The reduction in the size of the objects due to perspective, as seen in the ships, generates a vivid feeling of depth, all the more because the right foreground was never elaborated.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Antwerp Harbour Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

63581 Apollo and Diana  Apollo and Diana   1502 Engraving, 115 x 70 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Closely related to the very similar engraving by Jacopo de Barbari. In no other plate, except Adam and Eve is there such delicate modelling of the flesh. The contrast of male and female is emphasized by the introduction of movement. The head of Diana is almost identical to the one in the drawing Woman Riding a Dolphin, dated 1503. The D of the monogram shows a correction.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Apollo and Diana Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological
63668 Apollo with the Solar Disc  Apollo with the Solar Disc   1504 Pen, 285 x 202 mm British Museum, London The full title: Apollo with the Solar Disc and Diana Trying to Shield Herself from the Rays with Her Uplifted Hand. This variation on the Adam of the 1504 copperplate engraving was also conceived originally as a print, but was not engraved. The Adam of the print is more felicitous because of the contrast supplied by the turning of his head away from his extended free leg. The present drawing is finished to a great extent but not yet fully refined. The celestial background, rich in painterly effect, was added at a later stage. The original purpose was the depiction of the male figure alone, who represented the planetary god Sol. The rendering of the sun's rays is extremely noteworthy. The word "Apolo," written backwards with a view toward the engraving, is probably a substitute for the earlier name Sol; this would explain the conspicuous incongruity of the inscription and the space allotted to it.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Apollo with the Solar Disc Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological

63627 Bearing of the Cross  Bearing of the Cross   1512 Engraving, 117 x 74 mm Art Museum, Princeton Sheet No. 10 of the Engraved Passion. St Veronica is shown kneeling in front of Christ. This engraved version cannot compare to the triumphant one of the woodcut. In this instance, Christ is pictured standing, turned toward the women. The rendering of this scene as a nocturne is unprecedented. This print can be called "Schongaueresque" in concept. The guardsman shouting at the people is, in fact, found in Schongauer's version, perhaps based on Passion plays. There is an impression without the hanger of the tablet bearing the monogram at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Bearing of the Cross (No. 10) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63584 Betrayal of Christ  Betrayal of Christ   1508 Engraving, 118 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 3 of the Engraved Passion. St Peter, striking Malchus, seems to take the spotlight away from Christ. The head of Malchus is strongly reminiscent of that in a Schongauer's engraving. The episode in the background, showing a fleeing youth, represents the rarely illustrated passage Mark 14:51-52, perhaps transmitted by Passion plays. The object underneath Malchus is a lantern, which he customarily carries in Passion plays. The emphasis is here shifted from the commotion of the arrest to the tragedy of the betrayal. Physical violence is limited to the duel between St Peter and Malchus. Christ, unconscious of the noose which threatens his neck, bends his head and closes his eyes to receive the kiss, as though Judas and he were alone in the universe. Closely related to the corresponding subject in the Green Passion.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Betrayal of Christ (No. 3) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63608 Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg  Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg   The Small Cardinal 1519 Engraving, 148 x 97 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe This engraving is one of six copper plate portraits of Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg, one of the most influential representatives of the empire. This portrait is based on a preparatory drawing which presumably dates from the time of D?rer's stay at Augsburg during the Imperial Diet of 1518. In a letter to Georg Spalatin, an adviser of Frederick the Wise, D?rer reports the circumstances: "I am enclosing three prints of an engraving for my gracious lord. It was engraved upon the request of my gracious lord of Mainz. I sent the copper plate to him together with two hundred impressions as a present. He then sent me most kindly two hundred gold guilders in return and twenty ells of damask for a coat." The plate was used subsequently to illustrate the book Das Heiligtum zu Sachsen, Halle, 1524. The portrayed man is placed before a screen. His erect posture, diagonal line of sight out of the picture, the coat of arms and the two inscriptions all emphasize the official nature of the portrait. The inscription above the portrait reads: "Albrecht by Divine Mercy Presbyter Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church, Titular of St. Chrysogonus, Archbishop of Mainz and Magdeburg, Primate Elector of the Empire, Administrator of Halberstadt, Margrave of Brandenburg." The legend on the bottom states: "Thus were his eyes, his cheeks, his features at the age of 29." Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg was born on June 28, 1490. He became Archbishop of Magdeburg in 1513, Archbishop of Mainz in 1514 and Cardinal in 1518. In 1514 Jacob Fugger of the wealthy trading house of Augsburg had advanced 21,000 ducats to Albrecht in order to secure for him the Archbishopric of Mainz, which entailed the electorship. The Pope authorized the sale of indulgences to reimburse the Fuggers, provided one half of the proceeds was turned over to the Papal treasury. An agent of the Fuggers subsequently traveled in the Cardinal's retinue in charge of the cashbox. It was Albrecht who appointed the Dominican Tetzel and thus indirectly caused Luther to post his 95 theses on the church doors at Wittenberg:.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg; or, The Small Cardinal Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait
63618 Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg  Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg   1523 Engraving, 174 x 127 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York "Before I became ill this year I sent an engraved copper plate to Your Electoral Grace with your portrait together with five hundred impressions thereof. Finding no acknowledgment of this in Your Grace's letter, I fear that either the portrait did not please Your Grace - this would sadden me, as my diligence would have had poor results - or else, I fear that it may not have reached Your Grace at all. I beg Your Grace for a gracious reply." Thus we have in D?rer's own words the history of this engraving. The fact that D?rer sent five hundred copies to the Cardinal, all produced at the same time, explains the uniform quality of so many impressions found in various collections. All these have the identical watermark, a small jug. This engraving is based on a new preparatory drawing that probably dates from the Diet of Nuremberg, 1522/23. The Cardinal had gained weight since the earlier portrait (The Small Cardinal) he had wild, protruding eyes, a bulbous mouth and layers of fat on chin and cheeks. D?rer offset the predominant lower part of the face with a large cap. It suggests that beneath it a large impressive head is to be found. In actuality that was not the case. D?rer used utmost discretion in the treatment of the physiological details without denying the monstrous reality. It is D?rer's most interesting utilization of a profile. In contrast with the Small Cardinal, and in accordance with other late portrait engravings, this portrait has depth and substance. It is treated as a real tablet, carved and framed after the fashion of Roman tombstones, which were common in Germany, as in Italy and France.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg; or, the Great Cardinal Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait
63678 Caspar Sturm  Caspar Sturm   1520 Silverpoint, 127 x 189 mm Mus?e Cond? Chantilly This is a leaf from the sketchbook of the trip to the Lowlands. The legend reads: "1520 Caspar Sturm alt 45 Jor zw ach gemacht" (1520, Caspar Sturm, 45 years old, done at Aix-la-Chapelle [Aachen]). The lighting is peculiar, the landscape is related to the portrait. It is conjectured that the word "toll" indicates a tollhouse. The drawing is mentioned in the journal of the trip to the Lowlands: "Ich hob den Sturm conterfet" (I did a portrait of Sturm).Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Caspar Sturm Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63591 Christ before Caiaphas  Christ before Caiaphas   1512 Engraving, 117 x 74 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 4 of the Engraved Passion. The ceiling, in this instance, gives the engraving a feeling of architectural enclosure, quite in contrast to other subjects of the series. The ceiling beams are directed toward the vanishing point on the left. This serves to emphasize the dialogue between Christ and Caiaphas, which is further enhanced by the lighting. The guardsman on the right seems Leonardesque. This engraving is based on the corresponding subject in the Green Passion. The main figures, especially the deceitful Caiaphas, are drawn in a masterly manner.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Christ before Caiaphas (No. 4) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63594 Christ before Pilate  Christ before Pilate   1512 Engraving, 117 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 5 of the Engraved Passion. The false witness is pointing at Christ. The close relationship of this engraving to the Green Passion has been noted by most commentators. Nevertheless, it has recently been asserted that the Green Passion sheets may have been based on the engravings and executed by Hans von Kulmbach. This high degree of similarity of the two renderings casts great doubt on the authenticity of the Green Passion sheet.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Christ before Pilate (No. 5) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

Christ is shown in profile, yet quite differently from the woodcut versions of this subject. This is richer and more picturesque. Nevertheless, greater clarity is not quite achieved. The similarity of the spatial arrangement to the Flagellation can be observed. Pilate is seen in the background, standing next to Caiaphas. The bald bearded man is reminiscent of Italian model heads.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Christ Crowned with Thorns (No. 7) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

The rocks in starlike layers and the veil of mist pressing down from above lend support to the effect of the motif.

63587 Coat-of-Arms with a Skull  Coat-of-Arms with a Skull   1503 Engraving, 220 x 156 mm Art Institute, Chicago This engraving is not mentioned in D?rer's diary of his trip to the Low Countries in 1520/21. The subject seems to be connected with the Bavarian War of 1503. Duke George the Rich had died that year without male issue. Contrary to Imperial law, he left his lands to his daughter. This led to the War of the Bavarian Succession, in which the city of Nuremberg was deeply involved. Her army captured much of the surrounding territory and Nuremberg became the largest of the "free cities" of the Empire. This engraving appears to be an allegory of this war, which ended badly for the ill-advised titled lady. The Emperor deprived her of her lands, while Nuremberg was permitted to retain the conquered territory.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Coat-of-Arms with a Skull Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

63659 Death of Orpheus  Death of Orpheus   1494 Pen drawing, 289 x 225 mm Kunsthalle, Hamburg This drawing is probably derived from a painting by Andrea Mantegna, whose printed graphics D?rer copied. Mantegna in his turn was using Greco-Roman models. This landscape, the details of the drapery folds and the handling of the line in general are worked out in a quite independent fashion. The centre of the picture is the male nude in motion. According to the Metamorphoses by the classical author Ovid (43 B.C.-17/18 A.D.), Orpheus introduced homosexual love to Thrace and for that reason is beaten to death by two Thracian women during a bacchanal. The group of figures is placed before a central tree in which an open book with music is hanging. The classical singer's lyre is lying at his feet. In the tree a banderole with legends: "Orfeus der erst puseran" (Orpheus, the first pederast). The woman at the left and the boy were used by D?rer a few years later in the engraving known as "Jealousy" (more correctly "Chastity and Unchastity").Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Death of Orpheus Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological
63632 Deposition  Deposition   1512 Engraving, 117 x 74 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 13 of the Engraved Passion. In this case the engraved and woodcut version can be easily compared. Both were executed at about the same time. One is the most complicated, the other the simplest solution. In the engraving some of the dignity is sacrificed by the complicated overlappings, as in the case of Christ's body. The woodcut version of the Small Passion was difficult to surpass in the engraving. D?rer decided to use the tomb as seen from the front, making for the interesting overlappings.

63740 Emperor Charlemagne  Emperor Charlemagne   1512 Oil on lindenwood, 188 x 87,6 cm Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg The idealized portrait of Emperor Charlemagne was intended for the "Heiltumskammer" in the Schoppersche House by the marketplace, together with the portrait of Emperor Sigismund of Poland (also in Nuremberg). This was where the coronation insignia and relics were kept, which were put on display once a year at the so-called "Heiltumsweisungen." The physiognomy of Charlemagne, shown in the magnificent original coronation robes, is reminiscent of depictions of God the Father. The crown, sword and imperial orb were prepared by D?rer in sketches. The German imperial coat of arms and French coat of arms with the fleur-de-lis are emblazoned at the top.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Emperor Charlemagne Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

On that occasion, he did the portrait of Jakob Fugger (Staatsgalerie, Augsburg) and also one in a half-bust of the emperor, then fifty-nine. It is a pencil drawing carried out on 28 June (as indicated by the inscription on the same paper). Shortly thereafter, probably still during his sojourn in Augsburg, he did a second portrait, still in a half-bust, but this time painted on canvas: D?rer probably preferred canvas to panel because it simplified the execution, for the painting as well as for the transportation. This painting, now in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, did not have the inscription on parchment, which was added only after the emperor's death on 12 January 1519. The inscription is in German. It was transcribed, translated in Latin, in capital letters on the third panel portrait, now in Vienna.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Emperor Maximilian I Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

63726 Feast of the Rose Garlands  Feast of the Rose Garlands   1506 Oil on poplar panel National Gallery, Prague The Feast of the Rose Garlands is undoubtedly the most important work that D?rer created during his sojourn in Venice and was the work that ushered in the Renaissance. D?rer was obviously aware of this, as his letters and the painting itself demonstrate. The painting shows this in the distinction he gives his self-portrait: in the top right, in front of the typically German landscape passage at the foot of the mountains, with his face framed by long blond hair, donning luxurious clothes - even a precious fur cloak, in spite of the warm season - so as to be noticed among the other characters. He alone has ostentatiously turned his gaze to the spectator. Even the writing on the paper he holds is unusual for Italy. It indicates not only the time of production (five months), but next to his own name is the indication germanus. This detail was to distinguish himself from his Venetian colleagues, who evidently held him in very high regard, since even the doge and the patriarch came to his workshop to admire his work. The artist's companion is likely to be Leonhard Vilt, founder of the Brotherhood of the Rosary in Venice. The man in the far right, recognizable by the square he holds, is the architect Hieronymus of Augsburg, engineer of the new Fondaco dei Tedeschi (1505-8) after it was completely destroyed in a fire. Inscription on the sheet in the artist's hand, monogrammed and autograph writing: EXEGIT QUINQUE MESTRI SPATIO ALBERTUS DURER GERMANUS MDVI.

The attributes, staff and cloth, suggest that this freely drawn nude study was created from a model. The firmly sketched shape of her body forms a charming contrast with the glazed, freely swinging cloth.

It has been assumed that they were used as preliminary sketches for stained glass windows. Like the other pictures, the sheet of Christ before Caiaphas distinguishes itself through its fine white highlights which achieve a magical plasticity and dramatic lighting - as was created by the "clair-obscur" technique - in their harmony with the green base colour of the scene. Christ and Pilate, the two antagonists in the foreground, are positioned opposite each other and emphasized both by the lighting and the architecture.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Green Passion: Christ before Caiaphas Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

The head of the lute-playing angel by the Madonna's feet is a masterpiece of drawing. The technique of the brush drawing with white highlights on blue paper was one D?rer became acquainted with in Venice. The interplay of white and dark parallel and cross-hatchings which gently follow the curves of the face create the plastic effect of the light and dark shades.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Head of an Angel Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

At the same time, the natural appearance of the hair seems to have been oddly neglected in the rendering ("pretzel locks").

This is confirmed by the fact that the two pictures were created at the same time. In contrast to the preliminary drawing for the Feast of the Rose Garlands, D?rer kept more rigidly to his preliminary study in the painting of Christ among the Doctors, diverging only in details such as the reproduction of the hair.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Head of the Twelve Year Old Christ Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

From the proportional scheme drawn onto the sheet, it can be seen that D?rer precisely prepared the copper engraving in the same manner as his studies on the ideal proportions of the horse. While he did not change the depiction of the rider in the copper engravings, he altered details in the horse several times, for example correcting its right hind hoof both on the preliminary drawing and on the plate.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Knight on Horseback Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study
63599 Knight, Death and the Devil  Knight, Death and the Devil   1513 Engraving, 245 x 188 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe During 1513 and 1514 D?rer created the greatest of his copperplate engravings: the Knight, St Jerome in His Study, and Melencolia I - all of approximately the same size. The extensive, complex, and often contradictory literature concerning these three engravings deals largely with their enigmatic, allusive, iconographic details. Although repeatedly contested, it probably must be accepted that the engravings were intended to be interpreted together. There is general agreement, however, that D?rer, in these three master engravings, wished to raise his artistic intensity to the highest level, which he succeeded in doing. Finished form and richness of conception and mood merge into a whole of classical perfection. Knight, Death and the Devil, also known as The Rider, represents an allegory on Christian salvation. Unflustered either by Death who is standing in front of him with his hour-glass, or by the Devil behind him, an armoured knight is riding along a narrow defile, accompanied by his loyal hound. This represents the steady route of the faithful, through all of life's injustice, to God who is symbolized by the castle in the background. The dog symbolizes faith, and the lizard religious zeal. The horse and rider, like other preliminary studies made by D?rer, are derived from the canon of proportions drawn up by Leonardo da Vinci.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Knight, Death and the Devil Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological

63741 Lamentation for Christ  Lamentation for Christ   1500-03 Oil on panel Alte Pinakothek, Munich This scene is framed above by a beautiful landscape in which Jerusalem can be seen off the lakeshore, atop a hill, in the foreground. Behind the city is a mountain peak and a mountain range that disappear into the background. The city, mountains, and lake are flooded with light. A thick blanket of heavy black clouds that thins out just above the lake in the back looms over the mountains. While the presence of the black clouds is justified by the narration of the crucifixion ("and darkness came over the whole land...while the sun's light failed," Luke 23:45), and the light is explained by the words of the apocryphal gospel of Saint Peter when he describes the position ("and the sun began to shine again ", 6:21), the Jerusalem that appears in the painting - a city near water, with house, towers, and fortification walls, lying against rocky mountains - is decidedly an invented, Nordic city, which does not at all reflect the actual appearance, well known at that time, of this blessed city.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Lamentation for Christ (detail) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

63630 Lamentation over Christ  Lamentation over Christ   1507 Engraving, 115 x 71 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 12 of the Engraved Passion. Also called Descent from the Cross, this is the first of D?rer's engravings after his return from Italy. It is not yet appreciably different in style from those of 1504/05. The Lamentation over Christ is the earliest of the plates of the Engraved Passion and considerably weaker than the other subjects of that series. It suffers from D?rer's preoccupation during this period with the arrangement of limbs. The position of Christ's legs is similar to that of the Infant Christ's in the painting The Brotherhood of the Rosary. D?rer could not have thought of an entire series of Passion subjects at that time, otherwise he would have begun with the Agony in the Garden. In contrast to the other subjects which were to follow, the background of this engraving is white.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Lamentation over Christ (No. 12) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63733 Lot Fleeing with his Daughters from Sodom  Lot Fleeing with his Daughters from Sodom   1498 Oil and tempera on panel, 52 x 41 cm National Gallery of Art, Washington This delightfully spontaneous panel depicts Lot and his two daughters fleeing from the destruction of Sodom. In the story from Genesis, two angels warn Lot that he should escape before God destroys the city for its sins. Lot is told that his family must not look back, otherwise they will be turned into pillars of salt. In D?rer's panel, Lot leads the way, dressed in a warm fur-lined coat and a magnificent turban. He carries a basket of eggs and has a flask of wine slung over his shoulder on his stick. His two daughters follow several paces behind, one bearing a bundle on her head and the other with an elegant casket and a distaff and yarn. Far behind them, near the towering rocks, is Lot's wife, transformed into a brown pillar of salt. In the distance the town of Sodom explodes with brimstone and fire, huge columns of smoke belching up into the sky. Gomorrah, in the far distance, suffers a similar fate. This depiction of Lot's flight is not the main picture, but the reverse of a panel of the Virgin and Child. The two sides are quite different, not only in subject-matter but also in style. The Lot panel is painted in a loose, spontaneous manner, whereas the Virgin and Child is much more finely worked. However, D?rer must have intended them to be seen together. The panel was painted for the Nuremberg merchant family of Haller, whose arms appear in the bottom left corner of the panel of the Virgin. Virgin and Child at a Window was long assumed to be the work of the Venetian artist Giovanni Bellini, because of its composition and colouring. In 1934 it was identified as a D?rer, painted about three years after his return from Venice. It was bought by Baron Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza, who owned it until 1950.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Lot Fleeing with his Daughters from Sodom Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

The "L [Lucas] 1525" above it shows that the drawing was once given out to be a work of the Dutch artist. If that was incorrect, it still cannot be denied that in its calm physiognomy the drawing is close to the Dutch manner. The hair falling in strands is not stylised in D?rer's fashion. The whole piece is in the severe manner of the late period, with a strongly emphasized contrast between the fundamental horizontal and vertical directions. The background is dark and uniform.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: "Lucas van Leyden" Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63603 Madonna by the Wall  Madonna by the Wall   1514 Engraving, 149 x 101 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Critics call this the most perfect and rare of all of D?rer's engravings, assigning to it a special place among all of D?rer's plates. It is transitional from the technique of deep black lines to a more even-tempered, silvery mat texture. Its mood is almost tragic, akin to that of Melencolia I, perhaps because of the death of D?rer's mother, which occurred on May 14, 1514. Whereas the Madonna with the Monkey is pure black and white, the Madonna by the Wall shows a unique variety of texture resulting in a colouristic effect. The Madonna by the Wall represents a perfect coincidence of apparent opposites. Regal, virginal, yet humble and motherly. Its utmost precision of design is combined with incomparable softness of texture. The Infant Christ is here holding an apple (compare Madonna by the Tree). In the background appears the castle of Nuremberg, which D?rer could see from the windows of his house.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Madonna by the Wall Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63614 Madonna Crowned by an Angel  Madonna Crowned by an Angel   1520 Engraving, 139 x 100 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York According to D?rer's diary he gave away this Virgin as a present on four occasions. It is not as decidedly in the new style, but nevertheless distinguished by the new accent on frontality, exemplified by the youthful, idealized head. A peculiar impression is created by the white face and the concentration of the light on the skirt. It seems almost as if the scene were illuminated by lightning - the wind-blown hair, the creeping clouds, the upswept drapery of the angel - and in these surroundings sits the Virgin, smiling even though empty of expression, quite serene and aristocratic, idealized in the style of ancient, mild beauty. It can be noted its abstract rigidity, exemplified by the stiffly erect posture and the angular drapery, in all of which it surpasses the Madonna Crowned by Two Angels.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Madonna Crowned by an Angel Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

The Virgin is crowned with a wreath of roses and is holding an apple. In spite of its admirable style, it lacks warmth compared to earlier versions. The background is no longer picturesque but rather dry in its reality. D?rer made use of a much older preparatory study, originally sketched for the Heller Altarpiece, for the drapery of this engraving.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Madonna Crowned by Two Angels Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

Only the halo indicates the holy nature of the group of figures. A human attitude is expressed in the loving way the mother is turning to her child, and this was intended to give the observer an emotional understanding of the Christian doctrine of salvation by encouraging "compassio," sympathy with the sufferings of Christ. D?rer recorded in his diary of the trip to the Low Countries that he gave away this print together with the Madonna Crowned by an Angel on four occasions (August 20, September 3, and late September 1520). Opinions of commentators vary greatly concerning this engraving. It could be noted that particularly great care was taken in the rendering of the hands of the Virgin and the head of Christ. The engraving is based or related to preliminary drawings.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Madonna with the Swaddled Infant Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63575 Man of Sorrows by the Column  Man of Sorrows by the Column   1509 Engraving, 116 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 1 of the Engraved Passion. Generally considered the frontispiece of the Engraved Passion. This print opens the Passion series, although it is not historical but a representation outside the Gospels. As such, it probably derives from Passion plays. In this version Christ is shown standing. Later, D?rer found the sitting position preferable and used it for the frontispieces of his woodcut Passions. The combination of the Man of Sorrows with the Virgin and St John was already used by Schongauer. The iconography is based on a vision experienced by St Bridget. The arrangement of the bystanders in half-length is quite new and remarkable. After this work D?rer suspended his engraving activity until 1511 and suddenly returned to producing a series of woodcuts after a lapse of more than five years. He issued more than thirty of the thirty-seven subjects of the Small Woodcut Passion during this period. The complete series was published in 1511. At the same time D?rer finally completed the Heller Altarpiece. In 1510 D?rer also prepared the additional sheets of the Large Woodcut Passion and the [woodcut] Life of the Virgin.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Man of Sorrows by the Column (No. 1) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

Albrecht the Elder had felt it was time for his son to marry and had chosen a wife during his long absence. On 7 July, just a few weeks after his return, D?rer was married to Agnes Frey, the daughter of the skilled and prosperous coppersmith Hans Frey and his wife Anna Rummel. It was probably just before their wedding that D?rer sketched his fianc?e, then in her late teens. Capturing her pensive mood with just a few strokes of the pen, D?rer lovingly inscribed it: `My Agnes'. Agnes, who still appears girlish, even childlike, here, is sitting at a table and supporting her head pensively on her right hand, her hair tied back. The intimacy of this everyday sketch is unusual, showing the depicted woman at a moment when she evidently thought herself to be unobserved.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: "mein Agnes" Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63580 Nemesis or Good Fortune  Nemesis or Good Fortune   1502 Engraving, 332 x 232 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe This engraving was created between 1501 and 1503 and was one of D?rer's main large format engravings. The female figure is derived from the poem Manto by the Italian poet and humanist Poliziano, which D?rer presumably became acquainted with when studying in the library of his humanist friend, Willibald Pirckheimer. The poem combines the goddesses of Revenge and Fate. The female shape is floating along above the clouds on a globe and with eagle wings, holding a goblet in her right hand and bridle in her left. She is the result of D?rer's studies of Vitruvius' proportions. Copies of this print were frequently given as presents by D?rer during his trip to the Netherlands during 1520-21. Vasari describes it as "a nude figure floating in the clouds, representing Temperance, with magnificent wings, a golden cup and reins in her hands." The reins signify restraint from temptation that should be exercised by man; the sphere uncertainty. The figure is proportioned according to the canon of Vitruvius. The landscape below has been identified as the village of Klausen (Chiusa) in the Valle d'Isarco in the Tyrol, which lay on D?rer's route of travel to Venice.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Nemesis or Good Fortune Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological

This is one of a set of four costume studies of Nuremberg women, two of them in dancing dresses and one in everyday attire. The artist's wife Agnes; then in her mid-twenties, was probably the model. The watercolour is inscribed: `This is how people dress for church in Nuremberg' along with the text `Think of me in Thy Realm'. Dressed in her best clothes for church, the demure young woman wears a red cloak with a green lining and beneath this is a blue-green dress fringed with white fur. She has a starched linen headdress. Her eyes look down at the ground, in a contemplative pose. Four years later D?rer used this study in his woodcut of the Marriage of the Virgin. The Nuremberg woman appears at the right of the print, in reverse, as one of the seven virgins who were Mary's companions.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Nuremberg Woman Dressed for Church Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

He was the German author of the Confession of Augsburg of the Lutheran Church (1530), humanist, reformer, theologian, and educator. His original name Philipp Schwartzerd means Black Earth in German, in Greek, Melanchthon. After studying in Heidelberg and T?bingen, he taught as a professor in Wittenberg. The main emphasis of his research was on theology, philosophy and rhetoric. In 1521 Melanchthon published the Loci communes, the first systematic treatment of evangelical doctrine. Because of his academic expertise he was asked to help in founding schools, and he virtually reorganized the whole educational system of Germany, founding and reforming several of its universities. In November 1525 and May 1526 he visited Nuremberg at the invitation of the city council in order to establish the first public school. Melanchthon is facing to the right in a striking three quarter profile. The epitaph-like Latin inscription refers to the humanist discussion Melanchthon led on the portrayability of the human character: "1526. Viventis potuit Dvreris Ora Philippi Mentem non Potuit Pingere Docta Manus" (1526. D?rer was able to draw the features of Philipp from life, but his expert hand could not capture his spirit. A.D.). It can be pointed out that the reflection of a window in the eyes verges on the ridiculous in this case, as the indication of clouds in the background show that Melanchthon is supposed to be standing in the open air.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Philipp Melanchthon Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63545 Portrait of a Man  Portrait of a Man   1504 Oil on panel, 43 x 29 cm Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest D?rer's paintings include altarpieces, religious pictures and some outstanding portraits. Although he began by working in the German late Gothic tradition, D?rer was to introduce the Renaissance to Germany with his pure compositions in which the sure touch of the draughtsman is always evident. With his workshop and followers he marked out the lines of development of the new style for later years. This small picture - a portrait of a youth, painted in brilliant, warm colours - is sometimes ascribed to D?rer's pupils (Hans S?ss von Kulmbach or Hans Baldung Grien). Some scholars believe to recognize in the sitter D?rer's brother Andreas; however the smooth features and simple attire hardly provide enough clues for identifying the sitter. However, a silverpoint drawing by D?rer in the Albertina Collection in Vienna shows the same model in a similar pose, clearly indicated in the inscription as Endres D?rer, the painter's younger brother

63729 Portrait of a Venetian Woman  Portrait of a Venetian Woman   1506-07 Oil on poplar panel, 28,5 x 21,5 cm Staatliche Museen, Berlin The painting is poorly conserved. Almost all the final layers of colour are missing. The eyes have been restored. Because of the absence of the topmost layer of colour, the painting has acquired a soft chromatic shading. Even if we know that D?rer executed it during his second sojourn in Italy, probably in the autumn of 1506 after the Feast of the Rose Garlands, workmanship seems particularly "Venetian." The refinement of the artist is clearly absent in the sketching of the hair. Some object is discernible in the curl hanging to the left. Only a few traces of the hairnet have been preserved, and the sky blue of the background, which is inexplicably divided into two sections, is probably no longer its original shade. In its original state, however, this half-bust must have been in the Venetian style, because of her full, soft shapes, delicately modeled with a measured use of light. We must count this painting among the most beautiful works D?rer produced during his second sojourn in Venice. The various attempts to identify the model - for example, as Agnes D?rer, because of the letters AD on the trimming of the clothes or the woman with her head turned in the middle right of the Feast of the Rose Garlands - have not held up to criticism. The letters are probably the initials of a motto.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of a Venetian Woman Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

63749 Portrait of a Young Girl  Portrait of a Young Girl   1507 Oil on panel tranferred from parchment, 30 x 20 cm Staatliche Museen, Berlin This small painting was in the collection of the Imhoff family of Nuremberg, and cited in their inventory from 1573-74 until 1628. In 1633, it was handed over, with the title Portrait of a Young Girl, with other works by D?rer, to Abraham Bloemart, an artist and merchant from Amsterdam. In 1899, the portrait reappears in London, and the firm P. and D. Colnaghi donated it to the Berlin art gallery. The delicate girl is portrayed with soft, curly blond hair, slightly dreamy her eyes, one somewhat lower than the other, a gentle, melancholic gaze; and well-defined, slightly parted lips. The red beret, worn sideways, with a little slit to the side, with a long red ruby and black pearl pendant, gives her a slightly cheeky air. The square green border of the red bodice sets off the upper part of her body. All these details put together have led to various interpretations. In addition to the fact that the "girl," when sold by the Imhoffs, was transformed into a "boy," Panofsky (1955) attributes an androgynous nature to her that could reveal the possible homosexual tendencies of the artist. A teasing letter of 1507 from the canonical Lorenz Behaim of Bamberg and the fact that the portrait does not seem to have been ordered would support this hypothesis. It has also been debated whether the painting was executed in Venice or after D?rer's return to Nuremberg. Considering the clothing to be typically German, there is no doubt as to its provenance.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of a Young Girl Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

63597 Portrait of Erasmus  Portrait of Erasmus   1520 Charcoal on paper, 37 x 27 cm Mus?e du Louvre, Paris In Brussels D?rer met Erasmus, the humanist scholar, and sketched his portrait which six years later he would use as the basis for an engraving. Born in Rotterdam in 1469, Desiderius Erasmus was the greatest European scholar of the 16th century. Using the philological methods pioneered by Italian humanists, he helped lay the groundwork for the historical-critical study of the past, especially in his studies of the Greek New Testament and the Church Fathers. His educational writings contributed to the replacement of the older scholastic curriculum by the new humanist emphasis on the classics. By criticizing ecclesiastical abuses, while pointing to a better age in the distant past, he encouraged the growing urge for reform, which found expression both in the Protestant Reformation and in the Catholic Counter-Reformation. Finally, his independent stance in an age of fierce confessional controversy - rejecting both Luther's doctrine of predestination and the powers that were claimed for the papacy - made him a target of suspicion for loyal partisans on both sides and a beacon for those who valued liberty more than orthodoxy.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of Erasmus Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63623 Portrait of Frederick the Wise  Portrait of Frederick the Wise   1524 Engraving, 188 x 122 mm Art Institute, Chicago Frederick III, called the Wise, Elector of the Empire and Duke of Saxony (1463-1525), was a patron of art and science, the founder of the University of Wittenberg and a supporter of the Reformation, although he never openly espoused the doctrines of Martin Luther. He could easily have been elected Emperor but wisely declined the honour. One of the earliest patrons of D?rer, he commissioned a portrait (in 1496) and many other works. The inscription beneath this engraved portrait reads: "Sacred to Christ. He favoured the word of God with piety, worthy to be revered by posterity forever. Albrecht D?rer made this for the Duke Frederick of Saxony, Arch-Marshal, Elector of the Holy Roman Empire; B[ene] M[erenti] F[ecit] V[ivus] V[ivo], MDXXIIII." (The phrase connotes: "worthy of high praise even while still alive.") The engraving is based on a preparatory drawing, probably prepared during Frederick's stay at Nuremberg from November 1522 to February 1523. It could be pointed out that D?rer must have had a remarkable memory in order to add so much form and detail in the engraving that does not appear in the sketch from life, particularly the details of the eyes, the higher eyebrows and the revision of the cap. The portrait shows the fat but somehow tragic face of Frederick the Wise, one year before his death, in three-quarter profile, in contrast to the strict profile of Cardinal Albrecht of Brandenburg.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of Frederick the Wise Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63652 Portrait of Maximilian I  Portrait of Maximilian I   1518 Charcoal and chalk on paper, 381 x 319 mm Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna On 28 June 1518 D?rer had sketched Maximilian during the Imperial Diet at Augsburg. He inscribed the drawing: `This is Emperor Maximilian, whom I, Albrecht D?rer, portrayed up in his small chamber in the tower at Augsburg on the Monday after the feast day of John the Baptist in the year 1518.' In the relatively informal sketch D?rer captured a hint of the fatigued resignation of the 59 year-old ruler. The drawing has suffered: the colour added to the face by another hand is now washed out, but has left behind large disfiguring traces. This is a preliminary study for the paintings in Vienna and Nuremberg.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of Maximilian I Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait
63747 Portrait of Michael Wolgemut  Portrait of Michael Wolgemut   1516 Oil and tempera on lindenwood, 29 x 27 cm Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg After he had achieved great fame, D?rer depicted the master who had taught him to paint. On it he inscribed: `This portrait was done by Albrecht D?rer of his teacher, Michael Wolgemut, in 1516', to which he later added, `and he was 82 years old, and he lived until 1519, when he departed this life on St Andrew's Day morning before sunrise.' It is unclear from the inscription whether Wolgemut was 82 when he died or when the portrait had been painted three years earlier. Michael Wolgemut (1434/7-1519) had one of the largest artist's workshops in Germany. D?rer had served his apprenticeship there from 1486 until 1489 and Wolgemut must have been proud to have witnessed his former pupil's rapid success. In D?rer's portrait, everything is focused on the head, set against a neutral green background. The old man's features are not disguised, from his sunken eyes and gaunt cheeks to the loose skin around his neck. Wolgemut wears a fur-lined coat and a simple hat or scarf, perhaps the headgear he would have worn in his workshop to keep off the dust. His eyes are still alert and he has a thoughtful expression. D?rer does not depict a pitiable man, but marvels at his indomitable spirit.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of Michael Wolgemut Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

63737 Portrait of Oswolt Krel  Portrait of Oswolt Krel   1499 Oil on panel, 50 x 39 cm (central), 50 x 16 cm (each side panel) Alte Pinakothek, Munich Inscription in the top left by someone else (?): OSWOLT KREL 1499. This portrait comes from the collection of the Princes Oettingen-Wallerstein, who had acquired it in 1812; if has been in its present location since 1928. It is presumed that Oswolt Krell, a merchant for the Ravensburg House in Nuremberg from 1495 to 1503, had asked the artist for a true portrait of representation. Its notable size, similar to that adopted by D?rer for the portrait of his father two years earlier, and its setting, a half-length, suggests this. In this way, it differs from the Tucher portraits, which were intended for private use. The background, as in the Tucher portraits (Schlossmuseum, Weimar), is divided between the curtain and landscape passage, unlike those, however, it is divided rather unevenly. The bright red curtain is wide and occupies most of the space on the right; the landscape, on the left, is reduced to a foreshortening that shows a small part of a river that meanders toward the back, behind a group of tall trees. The windowsill that separated the subject from the landscape in the Tucher paintings is absent. The figure represented, set with obvious grandiosity, is found in front of the curtain, highlighted by intense colour. The large fur-lined cloak is casually placed on the right shoulder only, to show, on the left side, the rich black garment with the puffed sleeve. To the disorderly folds of the cloak correspond the parallel horizontal folds of the sleeve and the vertical ones of the garment. The three-quarter position allows the painter to bring out the quality of the attire: the fur, silk shirt, and gold chain. The careful, fastidious representation of these meaningful details creates a powerful foundation for the setting of the head: vigorous, strong features, the pronounced nose and the strong-willed mouth, the furrowed eyebrows, as if from a sudden start or fright that makes him direct his gaze off to the side behind him. Everything works to make his face threateningly severe, which even the soft, light brown hair framing him does not attenuate. To the energetic expression of the face corresponds the nervous look of his left hand clutching his cloak and that of the contraction of the knotted fingers of the right hand that leans on an invisible window sill. Colour, form, and proportion heighten the expression of supreme resolution, an expression that is the result of a serious psychological study that D?rer conducted on the merchant, who was the same age as the artist and who was later to become the mayor of Lindau, his native city. The two side panels that represent two "sylvan men" are wings to the portrait. They bear the heraldic shields of the subject and his wife, Agathe von Esendorf. They originally let the portrait be closed from the retro; one could imagine, then, that despite the large dimensions, the painting was to be conserved closed. The present frame has been made recently.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of Oswolt Krel Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

The extreme naturalism of the portrait is a reference to the hard life the depicted woman had endured, for she had suffered from various illnesses and had given birth to 18 children, only three of which survived. While in the Middle Ages ugliness was equated solely with evil or death, here its function is mainly as a private record.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Portrait of the Artist's Mother Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

Although he had not seen the animal with his own eyes, D?rer produced a drawing and a woodcut based on the sketch and description in a letter from a Nuremberg citizen who lived in Lisbon, Valentin Ferdinand, to a merchant who was a friend of D?rer's.

It was probably conceived as a companion piece to Apollo and Diana. The engraving is developed from the drawing Centauress Nursing her Young.

Brant, who had been D?rer's sponsor and client during his stay in Basle, was staying in the Netherlands at the same time as the artist in order to represent the city of Strasbourg at the court of Emperor Charles V. Seen in a three-quarter profile looking to the right, he appears to us as a critical, older gentleman. Though his arms and hands are only sketched in, D?rer concentrated particularly on creating a natural depiction of the face. In about 1520, when the portrait must have been produced, Brant had already gained international fame through his moralizing and satirizing poetic work, the Ship of Fools.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Sebastian Brant (?)

The Man of Sorrows is generally considered to be a self-portrait of D?rer created during his journey to the Netherlands. Semi-naked with a sunken chest and lips parted in pain, the man is gazing very naturalistically out of the picture. His crossed arms and the Instruments of the Passion such as the scourge and fasces remind us of Christ's sufferings.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-Portrait as the Man of Sorrows Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait
63644 Self-Portrait at 13  Self-Portrait at 13   1484 Silverpoint on paper, 275 x 196 mm Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna At the age of 13, D?rer created the earliest self-portrait of an artist at so young an age. Using silverpoint, the features of D?rer with which we are familiar from later self-portraits, though still rather childlike here, are depicted with gentle strokes. Like one of Martin Schongauer's Late Gothic angels in depictions of the Annunciation, the boy is also pointing to the right. His left hand is concealed beneath his sleeve, thus suggesting that this self-portrait was painted in front of a mirror.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-Portrait at 13 Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait
63728 Self-portrait at 22  Self-portrait at 22   1493 Oil on linen, transferred from vellum, 57 x 45 cm Mus?e du Louvre, Paris This is D?rer's first painted self portrait, dated 1493. It is the earliest known self portrait in European art produced as an independent painting (although earlier artists had sometimes portrayed themselves among figures in an altarpiece or fresco). A sketched self portrait, dated 1493 on the reverse, could well have been an early study for the oil painting. D?rer completed the oil painting towards the end of his travels as a journeyman, almost certainly in Strasbourg. It was originally on vellum, which would have made it relatively simple to transport, and this suggests that it might well have been sent back to Nuremberg. D?rer inscribed at the top of the self portrait: `Things with me fare as ordained from above', a sign of his faith in God. The artist's youthful features are framed by his lanky, ginger hair, which is topped by a red tasselled cap. Beneath his grey cloak, fringed with red, he wears an elegant pleated shirt with pink ribbons. His strong nose, heart-shaped upper lip and long neck are emphasized in the painting. Using a mirror, D?rer obviously found it difficult to paint his hands and eyes, the two features which are always a challenge in a self portrait. In his rough hands, D?rer holds a sprig of sea holly, a thistle-like plant. Its German name means `man's fidelity' and this, together with the fact that the plant was sometimes regarded as an aphrodisiac, has led to speculation that the self portrait was intended as a gift for his fianc?e. While D?rer was away, his father had arranged for Agnes Frey to become his wife and they eventually married on 7 July 1494, two months after his return to Nuremberg. However, it is just as likely that the self portrait was a gift for his parents, whom he had not seen for nearly four years. One can imagine the surprise and pleasure they must have felt to receive this picture after their son's long absence. It would have been a reminder of his handsome features and further evidence of his blossoming talent.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-portrait at 22 Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

63730 Self-Portrait at 26  Self-Portrait at 26   1498 Oil on panel, 52 x 41 cm Museo del Prado, Madrid This self portrait is dated 1498 and inscribed: `I have thus painted myself. I was 26 years old. Albrecht D?rer.' Since the artist turned 27 on the 21 May, the picture must date from the beginning of the year. The artist's pose is self confident, showing him standing upright and turning slightly to lean his right arm on a ledge. D?rer's figure fills the picture, with his hat almost touching the top. His face and neck glow from the light streaming into the room and his long curly hair is painstakingly depicted. Unlike his earlier self portrait, he now has a proper beard, which was then unusual among young men. Nine years later D?rer wrote an ironic poem in which he described himself as `the painter with the hairy beard'. The artist's clothing is flamboyant. His elegant jacket is edged with black and beneath this he wears a white, pleated shirt, embroidered along the neckline. His jaunty hat is striped, to match the jacket. Over his left shoulder hangs a light-brown cloak, tied around his neck with a twisted cord. He wears fine kid gloves. Inside the room is a tall archway, partly framing D?rer's head, and to the right a window opens out onto an exquisite landscape. Green fields give way to a tree-ringed lake and beyond are snow-capped mountains, probably a reminder of D?rer's journey over the Alps three years earlier. Depicting a distant landscape, viewed through a window, was a device borrowed from Netherlandish portraiture. The Germans still tended to consider the artist as a craftsman, as had been the conventional view during the Middle Ages. This was bitterly unacceptable to D?rer, whose second Self-Portrait (out of three) shows him as slender and aristocratic, a haughty and foppish youth, ringletted and impassive. His stylish and expensive costume indicates, like the dramatic mountain view through the window (implying wider horizons), that he considers himself no mere limited provincial. What D?rer insists on above all else is his dignity, and this was a quality that he allowed to others too. This picture was acquired by Charles I of England and later bought by Philip IV of Spain.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-Portrait at 26 Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait
63738 Self-Portrait in a Fur-Collared Robe  Self-Portrait in a Fur-Collared Robe   1500 Oil on lime panel, 67,1 x 48,7 cm Alte Pinakothek, Munich The last of D?rer's three magnificent self-portraits was painted early in 1500, before his 29th birthday on 21 May. The picture is proudly inscribed: `Thus I, Albrecht D?rer from Nuremburg, painted myself with indelible colours at the age of 28 years.' It is a sombre image, painted primarily in browns, set against a plain dark background. The face is striking for its resemblance to the head of Christ. In late medieval art, Jesus was traditionally presented in this manner, looking straight ahead in a symmetrical pose. Christ's brown hair in these images is parted towards the middle and falls over the shoulders. For the first and last time in Western art history, an artist was to portray himself in a Christ-like scheme. Given his idealized appearance as the underdrawing shows, his nose was originally irregular in shape - D?rer is approaching us in "imitatio Christi", in imitation of Christ. He has a short beard and moustache. D?rer has even painted himself with brown hair, although the other self-portraits show that it was actually reddish-blond. D?rer deliberately set out to create a Christ-like image, with his hand raised to his chest almost in a pose of blessing. But this was no gesture of arrogance or blasphemy. It was a statement of faith: Christ was the son of God and God had created Man. For D?rer, the painting was an acknowledgment that artistic skills were a God-given talent. However, D?rer has subtly departed from the traditional image of Christ in his self-portrait. Despite initial appearances, the picture is not quite symmetrical. The head lies just off the centre of the panel to the right and the parting of the hair is not exactly in the middle, with the strands of hair falling a little differently on the two sides. The eyes stare slightly towards the left of the panel. D?rer also wears contemporary clothing, a fashionable fur-lined mantle. The result is a highly personal image, one whose `indelible colours' still influence the way we imagine D?rer looked in his later years. The deceptive illusionism in which the picture is painted is also, however, a reference to the classical artistic legend about Apelles, with whom he had been compared by contemporary humanists.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-Portrait in a Fur-Collared Robe Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : portrait

The hand gesture is reminiscent of the tradition of depictions of Christ suffering, of melancholy and sleep. An interpretation of melancholy fits in most readily with a self portrait in this manner.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Self-Portrait with a Bandage Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63609 St Anthony  St Anthony   96 x 143 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York D?rer recorded in his diary of the trip to the Low Countries, 1520/21, that he gave away St Anthony as a present on six occasions. It is one of the very few D?rer engravings in horizontal format. St Anthony (ca. 250-350 A.D.) was the first Christian monk. He lived in Egypt and loved poverty, piety and scholarship. The traditional rendering of this saint shows him in the desert beset by fantastic creatures, a scene which allows the freest reign to an artist's imagination. But D?rer chose to picture him in a melancholy mood, in a setting where the scenery dominates the composition. The background is a cityscape taken over from an entirely different subject, the drawing Pupila Augusta which D?rer had laid aside many years before. The composition is almost cubistic in concept. The contours of saint and scene correspond. During this year D?rer experimented with "cubistic" figures and faceted faces, which like St Anthony seem to have been put together block by block.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Anthony Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63611 St Apollonia  St Apollonia   1521 Chalk drawing on green primed paper, 414 x 288 mm Staatliche Museen, Berlin The chalk drawing was an individual study for a planned monumental Madonna with saints, of which six preliminary drawings exist. The figure of St Apollonia appears on two of these studies. The drawing depicts a moment of spiritualization: St Apollonia is portrayed as a young woman who appears to be imbued with inner concentration. She is portrayed in so individual a style that it is still disputed whether D?rer used a model or created an ideal figure from his imagination.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Apollonia Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study
63619 St Bartholomew  St Bartholomew   1523 Engraving, 122 x 76 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York The knife in the hand of the saint is the instrument of his martyrdom. The engravings of the Apostles of this last period are quite subdued and unemotional. The stance requires the viewer to look at the head of the saint and to seek out what characterizes his greatness. The absence of a halo, which distinguishes this plate and St Simon from the earlier members of the set of Apostles, can be pointed out. St Bartholomew is more down-to-earth than the lofty type of 1514. These men are more modest, like artisans; their bodies disappear beneath the draperies. They fill the picture area from top to bottom and have a metallic quality, almost like bronze statues. The preparatory drawing is, in this case, much larger than the print.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Bartholomew Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63617 St Christopher Facing to the Left  St Christopher Facing to the Left   1521 Engraving, 119 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York This engraving is obviously the later of the two versions of 1521. The meaning is here conveyed more poignantly, as the saint, instead of looking straight ahead, turns his head toward the Infant Christ. The hermit, in this case, is moved further into the background. This engraving is probably also based on the drawings prepared for Joachim Patenier. It can be noted in this connection that Patenier's painting at the Escorial shows a quite similar group, only in mirror image. Both engravings are based on the account of St Christopher in Passional oder der Heiligen Leben, Nuremberg, 1488, published by Anton Koberger, D?rer's godfather.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Christopher Facing to the Left Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63616 St Christopher Facing to the Right  St Christopher Facing to the Right   1521 Engraving, 117 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York This is the first engraving after D?rer's return from his long stay in the Netherlands. He had left on July 12, 1520, together with his wife and a maid, in order to appeal to the new Emperor, Charles V, to confirm his annuity. No engravings were executed during this trip. D?rer returned to Nuremberg toward the end of July 1521, having been greatly honoured, yet also a sick man suffering from malaria. This engraving is presumably based on one of the several drawings D?rer made at Antwerp for the Dutch landscape painter Joachim Patenier in May 1521. The hermit in the background is carrying a torch.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Christopher Facing to the Right Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63579 St Eustace  St Eustace   1501 Engraving, 355 x 259 mm Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge The print is often erroneously called "St Hubert." This is D?rer's largest single-leaf copper engraving. He frequently sold impressions of it or gave them away as presents during his journey to the Netherlands. The legend of St Eustace is narrated in the Legenda aurea and is freely adapted in D?rer's picture. The Roman officer Placidus was converted to Christianity by a vision of a stag who spoke with the voice of Christ and carried a crucifix in its antlers, and he then took the name of Eustace. Here, the scene is taking place in the middle of a forest landscape, next to a pond. The statue-like depiction of the horse and the greyhounds, which are shown in five different body positions, shows that D?rer was more interested in reproducing proportions than in creating a precisely detailed account of the Christian legend. D?rer carefully avoided any overlapping of the animals. In this end and other details this print is closely related to Pisanello's painting of the same subject (National Gallery, London). The unusually large size of the plate appears to have caused some difficulty in printing. Even some of the best impressions have some squeezed lines near the edges. There are impressions on satin, all posthumous, at Coburg, Boston, Vienna, Gotha and Frankfurt.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Eustace Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63589 St George on Horseback  St George on Horseback   1505 (completed 1508) Engraving, 110 x 86 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York The last work before D?rer's sudden departure on a second trip to Venice in order to escape the Great Plague. This engraving was probably almost complete because the date 1505 had already been engraved in the plate. It was subsequently corrected to read 1508. The background is deliberately reduced in scale for sake of contrast and any indication of a landscape is omitted. D?rer in this engraving sought to combine the monumentality of The Large Horse with the elegance of The Small Horse. Pictured from behind, this unusual stance effectively conveys a feeling of pause before the saintly warrior forges ahead to further defend the Faith. It was also used in the Ober St. Veit Altarpiece, which was completed in D?rer's workshop during his absence in Italy.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St George on Horseback Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63602 St Jerome in his Study  St Jerome in his Study   1514 Engraving, 259 x 201 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe St Jerome in his Study is stressing the contemplative rather than the active aspect of Christian life. The engraving shows the translator of the Bible deep in thought at his lectern, with the figure of the saint illuminated by sunlight streaming through the window panes into the cosy room. In front of St Jerome are the resting figures of his faithful lion and dog. A skull on the windowsill and an hourglass above the saint are reminders of the transience of life. The astonishing advance in D?rer's printmaking technique is evident when this engraving is compared with his early woodcut of the same subject. D?rer, according to the diary of his trip to the Netherlands during 1521-21, sold or gave away copies of this print more frequently than any of his others. It has been repeatedly asserted that this engraving was to be part of a projected series representing the four human temperaments. Only two others have been so far identified, Melencolia I, and Knight, Death and Devil. Although they correspond in size, D?rer never gave away all three as a set. Occasionally he gave away St Jerome and Melencolia I as a pair. In the last of the three master engravings, D?rer placed particular emphasis on the subtle differentiation of the material qualities of the objects, and the depiction of the interior according to the laws of central perspective, the converging lines of which terminate in the space to the right of the figure of the saint. The design is based on an exact plan of perspective. A certain degree of distortion is due to the fact that the vanishing point is placed close to the margin instead of the centre. This is a peculiarity that can be observed in other works by D?rer.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Jerome in his Study Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63731 St Jerome in the Wilderness  St Jerome in the Wilderness   1495 Oil on panel, 23 x 17 cm National Gallery, London St Jerome kneels as a penitent. In his right hand he holds the Bible, which he translated into Latin, and in his left hand the stone which he is using to beat his breast. His eyes stare upwards, beyond the small crucifix stuck into the tree trunk. Wearing a blue gown, his red mantle and cardinal's hat lie beside him on the ground. Behind is his faithful lion, befriended after he had removed a thorn from its paw. In the background is a landscape with dramatic rock formations, probably based on sketches that D?rer had made of the quarries near Nuremberg. The scene is lit by a dramatic evening sky. The reverse of the panel depicts an apocalyptic celestial phenomenon, a red star-like light and a streaking golden disc. Although some scholars have considered it to be an eclipse or meteor, it is almost certainly a comet. D?rer's image is probably derived from woodcuts of comets published in the Nuremberg Chronicle of 1493. A similar object to the one painted by D?rer appears in the sky of his engraving of Melencolia I, made 20 years later. This small panel was only recognized as a D?rer in 1956. Art historian David Carritt realized that the lion is similar to that in a gouache which D?rer painted in Venice in 1494.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Jerome in the Wilderness Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious
63567 St Jerome Penitent in the Wilderness  St Jerome Penitent in the Wilderness   1496 Engraving, 324 x 228 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York The stone in the saint's right hand serves to strike his chest. In this engraving too Italian influence is manifest. The scenery in the background, however, is based on sketches of quarries in the vicinity of Nuremberg). There is a certain lack of cohesion between the various parts of this unusually large plate. St Jerome, one of the most learned Fathers of the Church and author of the Vulgate, was born in 331 or 342 in Dalmatia of a well-to-do family. He died in 420. He was one of the favourite saints of D?rer's time, but, curiously, Martin Luther was less than fond of him. "I know of no one among the teachers whom I bear as much enmity as St Jerome, for he speaks only of fasting, virginity, etc."Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Jerome Penitent in the Wilderness Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63572 St John's Church  St John's Church   1489 Watercolour and gouache on paper, 29 x 42 cm The Hermitage, St. Petersburg This watercolour is among the earliest landscape paintings in European art to depict a specific location. D?rer may well have painted it in the summer of 1489, at the age of 18, although it could date from 1494 after his journeyman travels. Inscribed `Saint John's Church', it shows the church and a row of houses which lay just to the west of Nuremberg. Nearly 40 years later D?rer was to be buried in Saint John's graveyard. D?rer's watercolour view faces south, with a view of the distant hills beyond. The perspective is curious; it is almost a bird's-eye view. The row of houses appears flat rather than three-dimensional. Despite these problems, D?rer has lavished great care on the picture. In his early watercolours he was more concerned about the rendering of detail, rather than the overall effect. The watercolour of Saint John's Church was looted during the Second World War and lost for nearly 50 years. Owned by the Kunsthalle in Bremen, it was among thousands of Old Master drawings which had been hidden for safekeeping in the cellar of a mansion 50 miles north-west of Berlin. The Red Army occupied the house in 1945 and soldiers ransacked the art works. Viktor Baldin, a young officer, found this watercolour on the floor, among a mass of works abandoned by the first looters. He saved the picture, along with 363 other drawings (including 22 D?rers), and brought it back to Russia. Baldin later gave the drawings to the architectural museum near Moscow where he worked. The existence of the missing Bremen pictures was kept secret until 1992. They are temporarily at the Hermitage in St Petersburg and lengthy negotiations are likely before their return to Bremen.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St John's Church Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : landscape
63638 St Peter and St John Healing the Cripple  St Peter and St John Healing the Cripple   1513 Engraving, 118 x 74 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York Sheet No. 16 of the Engraved Passion. This engraving, considered as the last sheet of the Engraved Passion, is, in fact, outside the scope of a Passion series. D?rer cannot possibly have intended it as the final sheet. It may therefore be presumed that he planned to add further subjects which were never completed. It has been left out of most of the old bound copies of the Engraved Passion, and may have been intended as the first sheet of a projected series of the Apostles. The contrast of the statuesque greatness of the Apostle and the merciless condition of the cripple is notable. This engraving is perhaps derived from Masaccio's fresco The Tribute Money in the Brancacci Chapel in Florence. St Peter is based on a drawing for the Heller Altarpiece; the man on the far left is inspired by a medal of John Paleologus. The ailment of the cripple has been identified as leprosy.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Peter and St John Healing the Cripple (No. 16) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63625 St Philip  St Philip   1526 Engraving, 122 x 76 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York St Philip was crucified in the reign of Emperor Domitian. This is the fifth and last sheet of the unfinished series of Apostles. The great white mantle pleased D?rer so much that he used it again in his painted panels of Four Apostles in 1526. The handling is very bold and shows the skill due to the absolute command of the graver. The long sweeping lines which marked D?rer's earlier work, as St Jerome in Penitence, reappear, especially in the background. This work was apparently finished in 1523, based on the preparatory drawing bearing that date.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Philip Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious
63620 St Simon  St Simon   1523 Engraving, 118 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York The saw was St Simon's instrument of torture. This engraving and the St Bartholomew are done in the 'corrugated style' where stereometrically simplified forms are contrasted with complicated systems of prominences and indentations so that the whole gives the impression of a compact massif broken up into big tablelands, craggy rocks and deep ravines. The preparatory drawing had been intended for the St John of the Great Crucifixion but was revised and used for this print.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Simon Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

His model was a 93 year-old man from Antwerp. In this naturalistic brush drawing, the old man is already leaning his head on his hand, but in contrast with the painting is engrossed in his studies.

The so-called Praying Hands were a preliminary study for an apostle. Removed from their original context, they have been viewed as an autonomous work of art and have become enormously popular. In the 19th and 20th centuries in particular, numerous reproductions of the Praying Hands have graced the walls of middle-class homes as an embodiment and symbol of German piety.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Study of an Apostle's Hands (Praying Hands) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

These include a sketch of an architect holding a set square, probably Hieronymous of Augsburg. He is dressed in black at the far right of the painting, near the front. Hieronymous was then working on the reconstruction of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, the Germans' trading house in Venice which had been destroyed by fire in 1505.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Study of an Architect Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

The contrast with Gr?newald should be borne in mind: in D?rer, the light and shade are entirely subservient to the plastic form; in Gr?newald, they create a general, unseizable movement that extends beyond the surfaces and blends the figure into the background.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Study of Drapery Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study

Although the body posture and gestures differ, the types of faces of the two Infant Christs in the painting and drawing are comparable.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Study of the Christ Child Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : study
63596 Sudarium Displayed by Two Angels  Sudarium Displayed by Two Angels   1513 Engraving, 102 x 140 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York D?rer mentions this engraving in his diary of the journey to the Netherlands on two occasions, August 19 and August 20, 1520, when he gave copies away as presents. He refers to it as "Veronicam." It is one of the very few D?rer engravings in horizontal format. It is the crowning representation of the Passion series. The new face of Christ, created by D?rer, appears here in its purest form. The features of the Saviour bear an unmistakable resemblance to D?rer's own. Definitely heraldic in character, the angels are balanced with almost perfect symmetry, yet subtly differentiated in pose and gesture. The Holy Face fastens its eyes on the beholder with hypnotic intensity. The likeness of Christ served as the basis for a large woodcut sometimes attributed to Hans Sebald Beham.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Sudarium Displayed by Two Angels Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63753 The Adoration of the Holy Trinity  The Adoration of the Holy Trinity   1511 Oil on lindenwood, 135 x 123,4 cm Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna This work was commissioned by the Nuremberg metal trader Matth?us Landauer. Also known as the Landauer Altarpiece, it was ordered for the chapel of the Twelve-Brothers House, which he endowed for a dozen impoverished artisans. In the centre of the painted panel at the top is the Trinity. God the Father is shown as emperor, holding Christ on the Cross and surmounted by the dove of the Holy Ghost. Around the figure of God are two rings of angels. Below them, to the right, are Old Testament figures and, to the left, followers of Christ bearing palm branches. Nearer the base of the picture are the slightly larger figures of the living, led by the Pope (with a blue tiara) and the Emperor (with a golden crown). The grey-haired figure of Matth?us Landauer, the donor, is depicted on the left, being welcomed into the throng by the outstretched hand of a cardinal. The landscape at the bottom of the panel stretches into the far distance. A lone figure stands on the land - the artist, who has depicted the earthly community being reunited with the realm of heaven. His hand rests on a panel which is inscribed: `Albrecht D?rer of Nuremberg made this 1511 years after the Virgin.' D?rer also designed an ornate frame for the altarpiece. An early drawing for the frame and panel is dated 1508 and shows that they were a carefully designed ensemble. The frame still survives in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremberg, although unfortunately it has long been separated from the painting. (The frame shown in the reproduction is an exact replica of the original.) Made of carved and painted wood, the top of the frame has a sculpted depiction of the Last Judgement, with God enthroned and surrounded by the kneeling figures of the Virgin and John the Baptist. An inscription on the base of the frame records: `Matth?us Landauer has finally completed the house of worship of the Twelve Bretheren including the donation of this panel. After Christ's birth, the year 1511.' D?rer's workshop also designed stained-glass windows for the Twelve-Brothers Chapel, but these were removed in 1810 and were destroyed in Berlin during the Second World War.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Adoration of the Holy Trinity (Landauer Altar) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

In the lower part of the painting, almost to contrast the suspended scores of saints and men and women, D?rer offers us, from a slightly raised perspective, the vision of a landscape passage. This one, even more than the one in the Heller Altar, disappears into an infinite background, illuminated by a most gentle evening light that also shimmers against the clouds. In this deserted terrestrial kingdom, D?rer painted himself, the only human being. He is set apart toward the right margin, dressed as usual in a rich fur cloak, and indicative of an ancient styled tablet with the inscription: ALBERTVS DVRER NORICVS FACIEBAT ANNO A VIRGINIS PARTV[M] 1511.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Adoration of the Trinity (detail) Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

The two heads are constructed with an incisive and meticulous line, a reflection of D?rer's troubled search for moral austerity. We may recall that this was a particularly delicate time in German history, shortly before the emergence of Martin Luther and the Reformation. The two saints inspire a diffuse sense of solemn veneration, in the passionate, severe eyes, the embittered curve of the mouths, and the overabundant beards, depicted as heavy, noble masses of coiling hair.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Apostles Philip and James Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

Its body is divided towards the back. Two front legs are sticking up out of its back. The Engraving was preceded by a leaflet by Sebastian Brant, which spread the news of the birth of a two bodied, eight legged, four eared and two tongued pig in Landser. Deformed animals such as these were interpreted as divine signs by the population, referring to the end of the world which was expected to take place in about 1500. In the course of the impending Turkish invasion, the leaflet and Engraving have also been interpreted as heralding the imminent supremacy of the heathens over the Christians, or more generally the rule of the Antichrist.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Deformed Landser Sow Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

The altarpiece was in the Kunstkammer in Dresden as early as 1687 which explains its name. The central panel depicts Mary adoring the Child, while the side wings represent St Anthony and St Sebastian. The central panel, displayed with the side panels in the Gem?ldegalerie, has also been attributed to D?rer in the past. However, this attribution was rejected in 1991 on solid grounds and it was attributed to a Dutch painter of the name Jan, who worked in Frederick's court.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Dresden Altarpiece Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

This drawing is inscribed by D?rer: This was drawn by Wolfgang Peuer in the year 1484. Nothing else is known about Peuer. He may have been an apprentice or an assistant in the goldsmith's shop of D?rer the Elder or in the workshop of D?rer's teacher, the painter Michael Wolgemut. The watermark of the paper used for the printing of this engraving, "Cardinals's Hat," was used by D?rer infrequently beginning in 1507. It was also used for the posthumous edition of D?rer's book Unterweisung der Messung (Instructions on measurement). The rarity of this print, as well as the watermark, suggests that the remaining impressions (Dresden, Melbourne, Paris aand Vienna) are posthumous.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Great Courier Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

The left-handedness of the subjects may be due to D?rer's use of an earlier model. Although a moralizing theme was read into the episode by some early commentator, D?rer probably intended to do no more than to portray purchased love.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Ill-Assorted Couple or the Offer of Love Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : genre

63568 The Penance of St John Chrysostom  The Penance of St John Chrysostom   1496 Engraving, 180 x 119 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York St John Chrysostom, a poor student at school, in desperation kissed the image of the Holy Virgin. To the amazement of his fellow students he henceforth wore a golden circle around his mouth and therefore was called "golden-mouthed" (in Greek, chrysostomos). The Pope ordained him a priest at the age of sixteen, but St John Chrysostom felt unworthy of the priesthood and became a hermit in the desert. There the Emperor's daughter, having lost her way one day, sought refuge in his cave. Upon her insistence he admitted her and they sinned. As penance he vowed to walk on all fours until forgiven. Years later the Empress gave birth to another child who refused baptism except from St John Chrysostom. Everyone despaired of finding him, when some hunters brought a strange wild animal to the festivities. The child, seeing the animal, said, "You are forgiven." St John stood up and shed his long moss-covered hair, and the Pope recognized him. The courtiers searched the desert and found the Emperor's daughter, who had also survived the ordeal in the wilderness. Mrs. Heaton, D?rer's first biographer in English, describes the scene very poignantly: "The princess is quite naked and more graceful in form and more beautiful of face than most of D?rer's female figures. There is a certain tenderness about her that makes us think that perhaps D?rer's sympathies were not entirely with the repentant saint who is seen in the background." The composition was perhaps suggested to D?rer by Jacopo de Barbari's engraving Cleopatra (or vice versa). Raphael must certainly have known this engraving since he borrowed the landscape and the castle, which appear the same in the Oxford drawing for Raphael's Pasadena Madonna and Child. D?rer's figures, however, were of no interest to Raphael.

In the engraving the houses were brought lower, the figures were brought closer together, and the best pig (the one with its feet in the trough) was omitted. The praying swineherd, whose bodily articulation is not easily discernible even in the drawing (the springing of the left leg!) became more unclear in the engraving. Such cases are important for the proper evaluation of the more mature master's efforts for complete clarity of representation.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Prodigal Son among the Swine Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

In the Gospel of St Matthew (Matt. 2, 13-14), the event is mentioned briefly, though narrated in more detail in the Apocrypha. King Herod ordered that all newborn sons should be killed once he had found out that a future king would be born in Judea. An angel conveys to Joseph God's message to leave the town. Thus the Holy Family fled to Egypt. The group of figures, with Mary riding and holding the Christ Child and Joseph leading the ass, is arranged parallel to the picture in the foreground, an arrangement which is repeated in the later woodcut in the Life of the Virgin. In the foreground the path is stony, and in the background a rocky landscape is visible. The rock is a sign of a safe place of refuge, but can also be interpreted as a mariological and christological symbol: "The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner" (Matt. 21, 42). Both the composition and method of painting still owe much to the Late Medieval workshop tradition.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Seven Sorrows of the Virgin: The Flight into Egypt Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

63577 The Temptation of the Idler; or The Dream of the Doctor  The Temptation of the Idler; or The Dream of the Doctor   1498 Engraving, 188 x 119 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York It has been observed by every commentator on D?rer's genius that in his work is found the blending .of two great traditions the medieval, culminating in the Gothic, and the revered Classical, rediscovered and nurtured by the Renaissance, especially in Italy. Erwin Panofsky feels that The Dream, sometimes called The Dream of the Doctor, should be titled The Temptation of the Idler, for here is pictured a slothful, self indulgent individual who sleeps in front of his heated fireplace, comfortably resting his head against a soft pillow. According to medieval codes of conduct such behaviour encouraged temptation, which is represented by the Devil, a demon who "blows" thoughts, presumably evil, into the sleeper's ear. Probably the dream itself is represented by the nude Venus, voluptuous and inviting. She is accompanied, no doubt to identify her, by a playful Eros. The model for the female form may well have been taken from the languorous women of the Italian Jacopo de' Barbari, whose engravings D?rer admired, or from other works by Italian masters which he knew. Young D?rer was trained as an apprentice in his father's goldsmith shop. There he learned the use of the graver or burin for incising designs and images into metal. Practically all of the great masters of the engraved print had similar early training. D?rer's mastery of his tools is evident in this print. Note the clean, sure flicks of the graver, suggesting modeling and volume. In the upper background, minute crosshatching is employed to project the sleeping figure forward from the rear plane. D?rer's training as a goldsmith also prepared him to render the hardware of the furniture, the texture of the tiles, and the graining of wood.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Temptation of the Idler; or The Dream of the Doctor Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other

63649 The Virgin among a Multitude of Animals  The Virgin among a Multitude of Animals   1503 Pen and ink and watercolour on paper, 321 x 243 mm Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna The Virgin holds the Christ child, who ignores the natural wonders around him and points towards Joseph. The small figure of Joseph stands near the house and he appears to be conversing with a stork. A closer examination reveals that many incidents from the story of the Nativity are being told. An angel swoops down from the sky to give news of Christ's arrival to shepherds tending their flocks on the hillside. On the left side of the picture, the ships of the three Kings have arrived and the Magi are setting off with their retinues. This charming picture is distinguished from countless depictions of the Nativity by the wonders of nature which D?rer has included. The parrot, perched on the pole by the Virgin's side, was the prophet which announced her arrival. D?rer drew this bird from an earlier study. The artist loved parrots and he later acquired several live specimens on his trip to the Netherlands in 1521. Just beneath the parrot in the watercolour is a green woodpecker, ready to hammer out a song of praise. In the bottom left corner a large stag beetle teases the Virgin's faithful but sleepy dog and a butterfly has gently alighted on its back. All the creatures have a meaning. The chained fox is a symbol of evil. The two owls around the tree stump represent the forces of darkness, but Christ's appearance has deprived them of their power. In the bottom right corner is a crab, like the one which D?rer painted on his first visit to Venice. Among other creatures are a snail, a dragonfly, a pair of swans, a robin, a moth and a water wagtail. D?rer has delicately added colour wash to his pen and ink drawing, blue for the sky and water, a range of greens for the landscape and traces of red for the flowers. The resulting work is extremely delicate, portraying the Virgin and Child with great tenderness and a touch of humour. Two other versions of this picture exist and the composition may well have been intended as a study for a proposed engraving.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Virgin among a Multitude of Animals Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

The dragonfly has been variously identified as a grasshopper, a praying mantis and a butterfly. The composition is still primitive, although the severely foreshortened head of St Joseph - asleep and old to stress the notion of Mary's virginity - is in marked contrast to earlier still extant drawings by D?rer of this subject. The sheet is a direct successor to Martin Schongauer's work.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: The Virgin with the Dragonfly Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

63732 Virgin and Child before an Archway  Virgin and Child before an Archway   1495 Oil on panel, 48 x 36 cm Magnani Collection, Mamiano near Parma Mary and the Christ Child sitting in her lap appear to be right in the foreground of a space which opens to one side onto a bordering interior courtyard. The baby reaches for his mother's hand and their eyes meet. While the Madonna still owes much to the Late Gothic German type, the Christ Child is reminiscent of Italian models. Half length figures such as this early picture of the Madonna were widespread in Italy and the Netherlands. The depiction of the space with the view to the side through an arch is reminiscent of Flemish models, but the figural conception and monumental triangular composition of the group of figures also relates to Italy, in particular to the Madonna paintings by Giovanni Bellini. The picture dates either from D?rer's visit to Venice in 1494-5 or soon afterwards in Nuremberg. It was discovered in the 1950s in the Capuchin monastery of Bagnacavallo, near Ravenna, and this suggests that it was painted in Italy where it has remained.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Virgin and Child before an Archway Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - painting : religious

The walrus has pushed the front half of his body into the picture and is looking at the observer with his peculiarly glassy gaze; this has led to the suggestion that D?rer created the study from a chopped off walrus head or stuffed animal, and completed the rest from his imagination. The study was to be used as a detail in the altar painting of an enthroned Madonna and Child surrounded by eight saints and angels playing instruments, but this work was never produced. At the top left D?rer wrote: "Das dozig thyr van dem ich do das hawbt conterfett hab, ist gefange worden in der niderlendischen see und was XII ellen brawendisch mit f?r f?ssen" (The animal which I have drawn this picture of was captured in the Dutch Sea and was twelve cubits in size with four feet).Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Walrus Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : other
63624 Willibald Pirckheimer  Willibald Pirckheimer   1524 Engraving, 181 x 115 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York The celebrated humanist Willibald Pirckheimer, counselor to the Emperor, friend of Erasmus of Rotterdam, member of the Nuremberg city council, translator of Greek and Latin classics, commander of the Nuremberg contingent of troops in the Swiss War, was Albrecht D?rer's closest friend and mentor. Suffering from severe gout, Pirckheimer had retired from the city council shortly before D?rer engraved this portrait. The copper plate portrait is an example of the new portraits he created using printed graphics. The bust is placed, like a monument, above an inscription that reads like an epitaph. It refers to the contributions and character of Pirckheimer, and the inscription beneath the portrait reads: "Image of Willibald Pirckheimer at age 53. Man lives through his intellect; all else will belong to death. 1524" (based on Livy III, 36). In this likeness, too, D?rer could not resist the temptation to show the reflection of windows in the eyes. The magnificent bulldog head of D?rer's best friend is not so much embellished as transfigured. Mass is converted into energy, and the heavy features of the learned irascible giant appear illumined, as it were, by the enormous eyes which flare from their sockets like powerful searchlights. This engraving was used as a bookplate by Pirckheimer. Many volumes containing it, formerly in the possession of the Royal Society, were sold at auction in London in 1925. Until 1945 there was an impression on white satin, probably posthumous, at Bremen.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Willibald Pirckheimer Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

The famous humanist was a close friend and intimate of D?rer's. It is possible that D?rer was stimulated to produce this profile portrait by ancient imperial coins, though it is also possible that the drawing was used as a pattern by a medal maker.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Willibald Pirckheimer Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : portrait

63576 Young Couple Threatened by Death  Young Couple Threatened by Death   1498 Engraving, 196 x 121 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe The Engraving showing a strolling couple is one of the genre pictures which D?rer created in the tradition of the Master of the Housebook and Martin Schongauer. As the gallant gazes at his companion adoringly, he points ahead to the path. The ostrich feather he is wearing in his hat is a sign of his bachelor status. The fantastic costume worn by the woman combines elements from both Nuremberg and Venetian fashion. Behind the tree, unnoticed by the lovers, Death is holding up an hourglass. The picture can be interpreted as a moralizing metaphor for the transitoriness of love and sensuality. The figure of death does not necessarily indicate a warning to lovers, as this was not customary in the fifteenth century. Death was, however, frequently pictured as a reminder that life on earth should not be solely devoted to pleasure and luxury. The cap worn by the man is a precursor of the berets which became popular in the sixteenth century. He has also already discarded the pointed shoes of the type still worn by his companion. The tall grass-like plant in the foreground may be allegorical, related to the quotation from Isaiah in the Basle Dance of Death that "all flesh is like hay and grass; grass dries up and flowers wilt.

63563 Young Woman Attacked by Death  Young Woman Attacked by Death   1494 Engraving, 114 x 102 mm Staatliche Kunsthalle, Karlsruhe In the middle of the picture, on a turf bench, a wild wood gnome is attacking a young woman who defends herself angrily. While the lean, bony man is reminiscent of depictions of Death, the dead tree to the left of the turf bench is a symbol of vice and fated undoing. The original intention was to include a commentary, as is shown by the empty inscription cartouche above the scene. The most obvious interpretation is that made by Panofsky, who considered the small genre picture to be an allegory of death. This engraving is today generally accepted as being by D?rer, although it is reminiscent of the Housebook master in several respects. The thistle-like plant in the background, eryngium (sea holly), occurs in several of D?rer's early works. Its reputedly aphrodisiac qualities were, according to Pliny, known already to the ancient Greeks, and apparently fascinated the young D?rer. Perhaps the print is related to a Nuremberg news item of the year 1489, when a man was hanged for a number of attacks on women.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: Young Woman Attacked by Death; or, The Ravisher Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : mythological

Albrecht Durer
b.May 21, 1471, Imperial Free City of Nernberg [Germany] d.April 6, 1528, Nernberg Albrecht Durer (May 21, 1471 ?C April 6, 1528) was a German painter, printmaker and theorist from Nuremberg. His still-famous works include the Apocalypse woodcuts, Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionized the potential of that medium. D??rer introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists, have secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatise which involve principles of mathematics, perspective and ideal proportions. His prints established his reputation across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Renaissance in Northern Europe ever since.
