Albrecht Durer is the most significant and admired artist of the northern Renaissance. Tracing his work and influence from his earliest career to his powerful posthumous role within German culture, this richly illustrated book surveys all of the artist's best-known prints as well as numerous drawings and watercolors. The catalogue of a greatly anticipated exhibition of Durer's work in England--including loans of many precious works rarely seen by the public--the volume features 85 color and 267 black-and-white illustrations. It follows Durer's career from his first work in the medieval tradition of Martin Schongauer, through his Italian education in the classical tradition, to his sophisticated development of the woodcut and engraving techniques that changed the history of printmaking. The book examines Durer's long-lived influence, from the obsession of artists and collectors with his work during the late sixteenth century to the iconic status he acquired amid the rise of German nationalism in the nineteenth. It considers how the popularity of his images migrated into a range of materials as diverse as porcelain and banknotes. This assessment of his art and legacy concludes with a contemplation of Durers famous print, Melancholia, written by the Nobel Prize-winning German novelist Gunter Grass, himself a printmaker. Offering a much-needed fresh look at the work of a major Renaissance artist, this handsome book is certain to deepen the broad international appreciation that Durer's work already enjoys.

Winner of the 2003 Art Newspaper/AXA Exhibition Catalogue of the Year Prize In the early 1500s, Durer was 'Europe's most famous living artist.' ... [T]he reverence for the German in the sixteenth century and beyond gives the show its basic theme: his enduring influence... The enthusiastic reception the artist inspired, and the way that different generations have made him their own, is also the central concern of the beautifully illustrated catalogue. --Times Literary Supplement Sure to become a standard reference source on the graphic art of Albrecht Durer... [An] impressive publication. --Choice
