Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528)
Albrecht Dürer was the son of a Hungarian goldsmith who moved to Nuremberg. He began his artistic education in his father’s workshop and was later trained by Michael Wohlgemut. He then planned a four years trip through Europe that probably also lead him to the Netherlands. He founded his own workshop in 1497, where he trained and employed a number of other artists that are also considered amongst the most important artists of their time. Dürer himself focused on woodcuts and etchings that were often printed in large numbers and sold at attractive prices. From 1505-06, Dürer travelled to Venice, a trip that would have great impact on his future artistic life. Back in Nuremberg, he received many commissions and became one of the city’s most influential citizen. Together with his wife, the painter travelled to the Netherlands in 1520/21, where he got infected with malaria, that finally caused his death in 1528. Today, Dürer is not only famous for his prints and paintings, but also for his art historical and mathematical publications that classify him as a great humanist and scholar. (cbo)
