German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer is renowned for his ground-breaking print-making proficiency. His father, a Nuremberg goldsmith, presented him with the tools of the trade from an early age. Later, he apprenticed with a publisher prior to exploring Europe and meeting other influential painters. By the time he turned 30, many of his renowned works had already been produced. Dürer continued to innovate, resulting in three iconic engravings: Knight, Death, and the Devil; Melencolia I; and Saint Jerome in His Study. This calendar also features 9 other astonishing works—each equally intense and fascinating.

About the Artist

Albrecht Dürer

Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528) was a German painter, printmaker, and theorist of the German Renaissance. Born in Nuremberg, Dürer established his reputation and influence across Europe in his twenties due to his high-quality woodcut prints. He was in contact with the major Italian artists of his time, including Raphael, Giovanni Bellini, and Leonardo da Vinci, and from 1512 was patronized by Emperor Maximilian I.
Dürer's vast body of work includes engravings, his preferred technique in his later prints, altarpieces, portraits and self-portraits, watercolours and books. The woodcuts series are more Gothic than the rest of his work. His well-known engravings include the three Meisterstiche (master prints) Knight, Death and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514), and Melencolia I (1514). His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his woodcuts revolutionised the potential of that medium.

Dürer's introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists, has secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatises, which involve principles of mathematics, perspective, and ideal proportions.
