FROM THE PUBLISHER - Among the ‘representative men’ of Renaissance painting, the name of Dürer stands for Germany. He was one of the greatest inventors of composition, and influenced artists of genius such as Michelangelo, Raphael and El Greco. In spite of that there has never been a comprehensive and popular English anthology of Dürer’s religious paintings, portraits, landscapes and decorations. The present Volume attempts to fill this gap. However, the work of the greatest Northern Renaissance painter is not readily understandable without an account of his life and of the wider historical background. Both are presented here with all their interesting detail in a stimulating text. ‘Like all volumes published by the Phaidon Press, the book is admirably illustrated.’ - The Listener. ‘The author has planned his book admirably. In fifteen chapters he deals with the manifold aspects of Dürer’s life and art with- in the appropriate historical setting.’ - The Connoisseur. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket.
