Although Germany’s Renaissance is lesser known than Italy, Denmark or France, Albrecht Durer is celebrated as the master of the movement. Born in 1471 in Nuremberg, Durer was a goldsmith’s apprentice to his father, but he was also an accomplished printmaker, engraver and theoretician, which sharpened his keen sense of proportion and realistic detail. His vast body of work spans nature, figurative, and fantastical religious art, even including graphic design elements. While traveling, he developed a love of Italian art, even including elements into his own work.
