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.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper is acid free with a smooth surface.
