Book Description
This incredible collection contains drawings in which Dürer experimented with many methods: the "anthropometric system," learned from Leonardo; the "exempeda" method, known to most as the man inscribed in a circle, the human figure in motion and much more. While some drawings are theoretical, many more are life studies that rank among the finest ever done. 170 plates.

Albrecht Durer and His Legacy: The Graphic Work of a Renaissance Artist

From Publishers Weekly
When Renaissance humanists in the north set out to elevate Germany's reputation in eyes of the cultured world (Germans had long been considered "savage drunkards...responsible for the destruction of ancient Rome"), Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) seemed to be "a natural candidate to represent the visual side of this cultural revival in the north," argues German Renaissance scholar Bartrum. Within a few pages, one can see why. Dürer's images of animals and angels, as well as his ongoing task of self-portraiture, remain accomplishments of the highest artistic order, at once technically incredible and emotionally deep. This copiously illustrated, exhaustively annotated catalogue for a new show at the British Museum examines the entirety of Dürer's career, along with his diverse posthumous legacy in mediums...

Review
'A welcome contribution to Dürer scholarship.' Jean Michel Massing, Burlington Magazine

Review
"The strength of this volume rests in the diversity of approaches taken by the contributors....the individual articles highlight important aspects of DÜrer's work and early modern culture from a wide range of perspectives. The main target of this book might be art historians, but all sixteenth-century scholars will certainly profit from the various insights offered here." Albrecht Classen, German Studies Review

"The book is well produced, scrupulously documented, and has a single select bibliogrpahy." HNA Newsletter
