Artist's Description

PRETTY & SMART – Detail from an oil self-portrait on board, by Albrecht Durer.
A German painter, engraver and mathematician. Famous for his print series:
Apocalypse
Passion of Christ
Knight, Death, & the Devil
Melencolia
Four Horsement of the Apocalypse
The Rhinoceros.

Third child in a family of eighteen children, of Hungarian father, German mother. Traveler and student, goldsmith, Durer became the most successful publisher in Germany and abroad, owning 24 printing presses at one time, incredibly famous in his early twenties. Painter, watercolorist, etcher, woodblock print maker.
He published the “Nuremberg Chronicle” in1493 with over 1800 woodcut illustrations. He didn’t think painting could earn him enough money (still true five hundred years later), and turned to printing.
Scholar, intelectual, and successful businessman, his engravings and prints affected the giants who came after him: Raphael, Titian, and Rembrandt.
