About Albrecht Dürer
Albrecht Dürer was a German Renaissance painter and printmaker.
The works of Dürer, characteristic of the Northern Renaissance, often used more Gothic influences than works of the Italian Renaissance did. Germany was the leading country in printing technology at the time. Dürer's godfather created the famous Nuremberg Chronicle, which Dürer likely worked on. Among Dürer's other work, this book used the technique of engraving to produce the illustrations. Famous Italian Renaissance influenced works by Dürer include Knight, Death, and the Devil, Saint Jerome in his Study, and Melencolia I. Dürer also did watercolor paintings, often of the landscape.
