Durer's Journeys: Travels of a Renaissance Artist

Available

Description

An exploration of Durer's career and legacy as an international traveling artist

The visual legacy of Durer's travels extends far beyond his lifetime and throughout Europe, and the documents illuminating them offer unique insights into the distinctive ways Durer conducted and managed his career, making him an intriguing-and even controversial-figure. This generously illustrated book examines the career of preeminent Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) as an international traveler, addressing his relations with artists from Italy to the Low Countries, including Giovanni Bellini, Joos van Cleve, Jan Gossaert, Lucas van Leyden, Quentin Massys, and Bernard van Orley. Bringing together paintings, drawings and prints, the book examines Durer as an artist-entrepreneur, explorer, and innovator of artistic theory. Durer's treatises and letters, and his detailed journal documenting his journey to the Low Countries in 1520-1, offer insights into his artistic practices and encounters with artists and patrons, as well as the nature of travel in the early 16th century.
