Meet Albrecht Dürer Credited as the greatest painter and printmaker of the German Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) produced a vast corpus of works ranging across altarpieces, portraits, self-portraits, engravings and books. Returning from a year long visit to Venice where he encountered Italian masters Mantegna and Pollaiulo, he published The Apocalypse in 1498, a woodcut series that cemented his fame in Europe with its bold, Gothic style, technical mastery and innovative format. His contributions to the craft of engraving in particular proved especially influential; driving increased interest in clarity, accuracy and detail, as well as efforts to represent realistic anatomy.
