Dürer, Albrecht: Woodcut series, Vol 1. (Illustrated). v1 18 Jan 2009
Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) was a german painter and printmaker. He is considered as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance and his works are exhibited in the main art museums, like the British Museum, El Prado, Le Louvre, the National Gallery, the Galleria degli Uffizi, etc.
With his woodcuts he revolutionized the potential of this medium. I'm showing uploading here his four woodcut series, of Biblical theme, in two volumes.
This first volume contains the "Revelation of St. John" or "Apocalypse", 15 plates, published in 1498 with a second edition in 1511, and "Life of the Virgin", 19 plates, published in 1511. The images are taken from the Web Gallery of Art. I've included thumbnails in the TOC and a gallery of miniatures.
All comments are welcome.
