About this Item

Descrizione libro: Thames and Hudson. Hardback, 270x220mm, 656p, 430 bw and col. illustrations English edition . ISBN 978050097037913. Literature about Dürer fills library shelves. Does this mean everything has already been said about the artist? Far from it, according to the scholars at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and their international partners in the Early Dürer Project. This book deals with the core phenomena of Dürer's early work, ranging from the artist's biography and surroundings to the question of Dürer's role as the archetype of the modern artist. New sociological approaches allow us to interpret Du rer's 'ideal neighbourhood' as a source of inspiration for the artist's work, resituating Dürer in the artistic context of his time, at an exciting crossroad between the imitation of traditional painting and the self-conscious renewal of his profession. Photographs of Dürer's early work, many of which are new and published here for the first time, complete the publication, which will establish a new basis for a modern understanding of Germany's most famous artist.

About this title


An exploration and appraisal of Dürer’s achievements, focusing on his early work in all media and the historical, sociological, and political background of his life and times

Painter, engraver, designer of woodcuts, and major art theorist, Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) is Germany’s most famous artist. This new study, published in association with the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, focuses on his early art and the circumstances of the young painter’s life that enabled his unique work. Dürer is resituated in the artistic context of his time, at an exciting crossroad between the imitation of traditional painting and the selfconscious renewal of his profession. Eighteen essays explore his background and the influences on his life and work, from his goldsmith father to his travels in Germany and his stays in Italy to his role as archetype of the modern artist. Hundreds of color illustrations of the early work, many reproduced here for the first time, help establish a new basis for a modern understanding of the artist. 430+ illustrations
