Albert Dürer: His Life and Work, Volume 1
1882. Volume 1 of 2. No exhaustive and critical account of the life and works of Albert Durer had been previously placed before the English reading public. This is a careful translation of the German original. Durer, the German painter and engraver, was considered the foremost artist of the Renaissance. He was strongly influenced by spending several years in Italy and worked with equal mastery in painting, woodblock, copper and iron engraving. These volumes tell the story of his life and work, with many, many gorgeous illustrations. Volume 2 ISBN 0766155102.
