Albrecht Dürer was a German painter, engraver, printmaker, mathematician, and theorist from Nuremberg. He was born May 21, 1471 and died April 6, 1528.
Dürer's high-quality woodcuts (nowadays often called Meisterstiche or "master prints") established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance ever since. His vast body of work includes altarpieces, religious works, numerous portraits and self-portraits, and copper engravings.
