In painting, Dürer had relatively little influence in Italy, where probably only his altarpiece in Venice was seen, and his German successors were less effective in blending German and Italian styles. Dürer's belief in the abilities of a single artist over inspiration prompted him to assert that "one man may sketch something with his pen on half a sheet of paper in one day, or may cut it into a tiny piece of wood with his little iron, and it turns out to be better and more artistic than another's work at which its author labours with the utmost diligence for a whole year". Dürer was born on 21 May 1471, the third child and second son of Albrecht Dürer the Elder and Barbara Holper, who married in 1467 and had eighteen children together. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatises, which involve principles of mathematics, perspective and ideal proportions. However, unlike Alberti and Leonardo, Dürer was most troubled by understanding not just the abstract notions of beauty but also as to how an artist can create beautiful images.

[11] One author speculates that Albrecht was bisexual, if not homosexual, due to several of his works containing themes of homosexual desire, as well as the intimate nature of his correspondence with certain very close male friends.[12]. Dürer created only three prints in the medium of drypoint. The first few were relatively unambitious, but by 1496 he was able to produce the masterpiece, the Prodigal Son, which Vasari singled out for praise some decades later, noting its Germanic quality. [9], After completing his apprenticeship, Dürer followed the common German custom of taking Wanderjahre—in effect gap years—in which the apprentice learned skills from artists in other areas; Dürer was to spend about four years away.

These were larger and more finely cut than the great majority of German woodcuts hitherto, and far more complex and balanced in composition. These things are so precious that they have been valued at 100,000 florins". Prints are highly portable and these works made Dürer famous throughout the main artistic centres of Europe within a very few years.[9]. The work is less proscriptively theoretical than his other works, and was soon overshadowed by the Italian theory of polygonal fortification (the trace italienne – see Bastion fort), though his designs seem to have had some influence in the eastern German lands and up into the Baltic States. In 1493 Dürer went to Strasbourg, where he would have experienced the sculpture of Nikolaus Gerhaert. Albrecht Dürer the Younger later changed "Türer", his father's diction of the family's surname, to "Dürer", to adapt to the local Nuremberg dialect.

In addition to these geometrical constructions, Dürer discusses in this last book of Underweysung der Messung an assortment of mechanisms for drawing in perspective from models and provides woodcut illustrations of these methods that are often reproduced in discussions of perspective. [4] By this time Dürer's engravings had attained great popularity and were being copied. Dürer also made several portraits of the Emperor, including one shortly before Maximilian's death in 1519. Another of Albrecht's brothers, Endres Dürer, took over their father's business and was a master goldsmith.

He also continued to make images in watercolour and bodycolour (usually combined), including a number of exquisite still lifes of meadow sections or animals, including his Young Hare (1502) and the Great Piece of Turf (1503, both also Albertina). Although Dürer made no innovations in these areas, he is notable as the first Northern European to treat matters of visual representation in a scientific way, and with understanding of Euclidean principles. After a few years of school, Dürer learned the basics of goldsmithing and drawing from his father. Born in Nuremberg, Dürer established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was in his twenties due to his high-quality woodcut prints. Albrecht Dürer ist ein homo universalis, in seinem Werk löste er sich von tradierten Formeln und vertraute seiner Beobachtungsgabe - sei es der ber… He made watercolour sketches as he traveled over the Alps.

The Venetian artist Jacopo de' Barbari, whom Dürer had met in Venice, visited Nuremberg in 1500, and Dürer said that he learned much about the new developments in perspective, anatomy, and proportion from him. Dürer may even have contributed to the Nuremberg City Council's mandating Lutheran sermons and services in March 1525. Notably, Dürer had contacts with various reformers, such as Zwingli, Andreas Karlstadt, Melanchthon, Erasmus and Cornelius Grapheus from whom Dürer received Luther's Babylonian Captivity in 1520.

Also, from 1525, "the year that saw the peak and collapse of the Peasants' War, the artist can be seen to distance himself somewhat from the [Lutheran] movement...."[35], Dürer's later works have also been claimed to show Protestant sympathies. The post-Venetian woodcuts show Dürer's development of chiaroscuro modelling effects,[20] creating a mid-tone throughout the print to which the highlights and shadows can be contrasted. In Italy, he went to Venice to study its more advanced artistic world.

His famous series of sixteen great designs for the Apocalypse[15] is dated 1498, as is his engraving of St. Michael Fighting the Dragon. For those of the Cardinal, Melanchthon, and Dürer's final major work, a drawn portrait of the Nuremberg patrician Ulrich Starck, Dürer depicted the sitters in profile. Instead, Albrecht Dürer presents major works and whole sequences, such as the iconic Apocalypse woodcut series (published 1498), the Nemesis … For example, "Schneckenlinie" ("snail-line") was his term for a spiral form. These drafts were later used to design Lusterweibchen chandeliers, combining an antler with a wooden sculpture. In 1512/13 his three criteria were function ('Nutz'), naïve approval ('Wohlgefallen') and the happy medium ('Mittelmass'). Agnes was the daughter of a prominent brass worker (and amateur harpist) in the city. [40] Here Dürer favours the methods of Ptolemy over Euclid. [9], During the same period Dürer trained himself in the difficult art of using the burin to make engravings. Dürer's etchings, engravings, and woodcut prints also contain exquisite detail and elaborate imagery drawing on religious and philosophical ideas. Thus, Dürer contributed to the expansion in German prose which Luther had begun with his translation of the Bible.[31]. He is thought to be the first to describe a visualization technique used in modern computers, ray tracing. Nuremberg and the masterworks (1507–1520). [31] In other words, that an artist builds on a wealth of visual experiences in order to imagine beautiful things. The Moment of Self-Portraiture in German Renaissance Art. Dürer's first painted self-portrait (now in the Louvre) was painted at this time, probably to be sent back to his fiancée in Nuremberg. Nuremberg was then an important and prosperous city, a centre for publishing and many luxury trades. Dürer also made several portraits of the Emperor, including one shortly before Maximilian's death in 1519. On his return to Nuremberg in 1495, Dürer opened his own workshop (being married was a requirement for this). His father, a successful goldsmith, had moved to Nuremberg from Ajtós near Gyula in Hungary in 1455. A self-portrait, a drawing in silverpoint, is dated 1484 (Albertina, Vienna) “when I was a child," as his later inscription says. Between 1512 and the final draft in 1528, Dürer's belief developed from an understanding of human creativity as spontaneous or inspired to a concept of 'selective inward synthesis'.

His large house (purchased in 1509 from the heirs of the astronomer Bernhard Walther), where his workshop was located and where his widow lived until her death in 1539, remains a prominent Nuremberg landmark. Despite the regard in which he was held by the Venetians, Dürer returned to Nuremberg by mid-1507, remaining in Germany until 1520. In 1513 and 1514 Dürer created his three most famous engravings: Knight, Death and the Devil (1513, probably based on Erasmus's Handbook of a Christian Knight),[21] St. Jerome in His Study, and the much-debated Melencolia I (both 1514, the year Dürer's mother died).
