albrecht durer's fall of man? by Madison L Q: I would like to see albrecht durer's fall of man in a musuem, but I cannot find the location of it. Does anyone know where I could view it in person? it doesnt have to be the original, just a copy works. Let me know if you know of a musuem with it! in florida perferable! Thanks!

A: Durer's "Fall of Man" is an engraving and exists in more than one impression. Among museums that own one are the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Art Museum at Oberlin College in Ohio. Museums do not normally exhibit prints and drawings continuously, so as to protect them from light and from wear and tear. Old works are especially fragile. You might contact the museums I've mentioned and ask when their Durers are going to be on display.

what is charateristic of northern renaissance art that albrecht durer do? ? by lecky77 Q: albrecht durer was a multi artist from nureburg, Germany

A: There is more of a break between the southern Gothic school of painting and the Early Renaissance in Italy than there is up north. If you look at the linework down south everything is more regular and even stylized, with planes suggested by tones. Durer, like Grunewald and the other Northern masters followed contour much more closely and his textures have a more tactile feel than the Italians. He nevertheless spread the southern invention of linear perspective through the north with his popular prints. In one sense the Renaissance arrived with him but in another Robert Campin and the Van Eyk brothers were embodying its spirit while Bruneleschi, Alberti and Massacchio were transforming Italian Art

What impact do you think Albrecht Durer has on today? by Q:

A: He was a major influence along with Vitruvius and DaVinci in shaping the way we look at ourselves, our bodies in this world! Architects, Designers, Engineers, Fashion Designers, Etc.

Not only in relating their work to the human form but Durer also made great advances in Geometry as well! And we use Geometry all the time! He was one of the leaders who helped shape the way the human form was portrayed in art! :)

He was one of the first to produce water colours completely based on the landscape.

How did Hieronymus Bosch influence Albrecht Durer? by biscuithead634 Q:

A: Dürer was an avid student of exotic animals, and drew many sketches based on his visits to European zoos. Dürer visited 's-Hertogenbosch during Bosch's lifetime, and it is likely the two artists met, and that Bosch drew inspiration from the German's work.

someone please albrecht durer opinions on his work with the praying hands? by Q:

A: It's brilliant.

How does Albrecht Durer's religion effect his paintings? by Q:

A: It may not be his "religion" as much as it is his immersion in symbolism. He comes from a tradition of iconography and metaphorical thinking. His appeared to be an inquisitive mind and one that enjoyed puzzles such as magic number squares which show up from time to time in his work. Incidentally, he was noted more for his engravings than for his paintings. It was common at the time he worked to do art work based on Christian or Judeo-Christian themes being right at the end of the Gothic traditions and he beginning of the Northern European Renaissance. That helps to explain some of the mythological and mathematical references. Hope this helps to get you started.

What is one of the most significant achievements of Albrecht Durer? by Shadow Q:

A: One of Dürer's greatest paintings, the so-called Four Holy Men (St John, St Peter, St Paul, and St Mark), was done in 1526. This work marks his final and certainly highest achievement as a painter. His delight in his own virtuosity no longer stifled the ideal of a spaciousness that is simple, yet deeply expressive.

Why is Albrecht Durer a significant figure in the Renaissance period? by Rose Q: Ha Ha your so funny kaptain..

A: He's regarded as the greatest German artist, and perhaps the greatest of the Northern Renaissance.renaissance. Durer is not so famous for paintings (although he was among the first landscape painters, and one of the first to use watercolours), but for copper engravings and particularly woodcuts. He trained as a draughtsman, which gave him the expertise to include tremendous detail in his work. The 'Apocalypse' woodcuts and the engraving 'Melancolia I' took the possibilities of these media to new heights, and by introducing Classical themes and subjects into northern European art, Durer helped start the Northern Renaissance.

Was Albrecht Durer a Catholic or Lutheran? by claire Q: I know the painting "The Four Apostles" is his support for Lutheranism and his woodcut of "Last Supper" is a Catholic scene...I'm not good when it comes to religions, so if somebody could please straighten this out for me. That would help a LOT!

A: Actually, this question has been subject to debate for centuries. It is thought Duerer officially remained a Catholic throughout his life, but he was certainly sympathetic to Luther's attempts to reform the Church. Some even say he died a good Lutheran. As you mention, many of his earlier works focus on Mary and the saints, while his later, Lutheran influenced, works have more scriptural subjects. The Reformation era was a turbulent time, and in Duerer's day it was still hoped/ believed that the differences between the Lutheran and Catholic parties would work themselves out in the end. The Lutheran Augsburg Confession makes a very strong argument that Luther's teachings were in no way inconsistent with the Catholic teachings prior to the corruption of it during the Middle Ages. Many Lutherans at this point did not consider themselves as a separate demonination, but as a reform movement within the Catholic Church.

How did Albrecht Durer depict light, shadows, and shading accurately? by Alexmilr01 Q: Please give as much info as you possibly can! Thanks:)

A: This may or may not be the answer to what you are asking: "The method used to create shadow in the images is known as 'hatching.' Hatching is drawing thin, closely spaces lines to create the impression of a shadow. For darker shadow, lines are drawn the opposite direction; crossing the original lines, then repeated again and again in other directions until it’s as dark as the artist wants." You might also go to these links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engraving http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hatching Hope it helps! :D

importance of Albrecht Durer and his studies of nature? by Gstat Q: can someone please decribe the importance of Albrecht Durer and his studies of nature?

Also, when you say study, did you mean study as in practice drawing? His finished works kind of dull some of the manic energy he put into his studies but look at them.

Albrecht durer spread and influence humanism? by INeedAnswers Q: I know he was a painter, I need to know how his psecific pieces that promotes and spread humanism.

A: ~David Hotchkiss Price convincingly demonstrates that Albrecht Dürer's art is best understood within the context of Christian humanist values. Price underscores this literary engagement because he argues that it provided the inspiration for Dürer to do for art what the Christian humanists were doing for biblical philology. Although not a humanist in the strictest sense of the word, Dürer, with his artistic productions, treatises on art, and correspondence with humanists, was an artist committed to creating a better society by harnessing classical art to the service of Christianity. According to Price, this philosophical approach permitted Dürer to synthesize the written and visual word into a new genre: the illustrated humanist book of faith. Thus, Price argues against the traditional view that Dürer was simply influenced by Renaissance humanism; instead, Price maintains that Dürer was an active contributor to the northern humanist movement.~ http://www.h-net.org/reviews/showrev.cgi?path=267481144762278

What inspired Albrecht Durer to print the Apocalypse (1498)? by nycdancer129 Q: I need a lot of details for an essay.

A: I imagine you've already seen the images, but just in case: http://www.apocalipsis.org/artwork/durer.html "In 1498, with much of Christian Europe anticipating a possible Last Judgment at the half-millennium (1500), Dürer published his book on the Apocalypse, with its fifteen terrifyingly forceful woodcuts. This series brought him fame and wealth; and with it some freedom from the patronage system, which, in turn, allowed him to chose his own subjects and to devote more time to engraving." http://www.hammer.ucla.edu/etc/durer/pages/durer.html "The turn of the 1500s was punctuated with surging fears of floods, earthquakes and the antichrist. Dürer’s Apocalypse series anticipates and explores this apocalyptic angst with scenes from the Revelation of St John. (...) Demonstrating a dramatic power previously unparalleled in graphic art, the Apocalypse is one of Dürer’s most important works which brought him international fame. This reflects Dürer’s unusual international awareness, as the 1500s represented a golden age for his own hometown Nuremberg which was epitomised by humanist knight and poet Ulrich von Hutton’s (1488-1523) statement ‘it is a pleasure to be alive.’" http://antiques-collectibles-auction-news.com/2007/11/28/the-print-legacy-of-albrecht-durer-a-renaissance-man/ "Dürer returned to Nuernberg in 1495, opening a shop and began building up a stock of engravings and woodcuts for sale. Although Dürer was an artist who could work in a variety of mediums, he realized that woodcuts and engravings made art available to the widest possible public. "Dürer hired an agent who could sell his prints in the fairs and markets of Europe. Unlike many artists of the day, Dürer was not dependent on patrons who ordered specific works, but was free to create the art of his choosing to sell to the public. "Dürer's earliest major work, The Apocalypse, was a series of large prints illustrating the book of Revelation, with the Scripture on the reverse side. To make these Dürer used large blocks of hardwood cut to the size of full pages of paper, several times larger than the blocks then in use." http://www.barefootsworld.net/albrechtdurer.html "When the 27-year-old Dürer published the text of the Book of Revelation with 15 woodcut illustrations, he realized a three-fold ambition. He secured for himself a new source of income, transformed the appearance of the illustrated printed book, and found an outlet for his religious imagination. The Four Horsemen demonstrates how complete was his success. "Dürer has compressed eight verses describing St John's visions (Revelation 6:1-8) into one scene. The first rider with a bow represents pestilence. The second, with a raised sword, represents war. The third, with the empty scales, represents famine. In front rides Death, sweeping citizens and a king into the jaws of Hades. "The descriptive power of Dürer's new woodcut style is evident. He has created light and dark tone with parallel and cross-hatched lines, and introduced luxuriant textures into the clothes, the manes of the horses, and the billowing clouds. "Since he was publishing the book himself, Dürer had to pay skilled block cutters to cut around his drawn lines. This was slow, dificult work and therefore expensive. However when the task was complete, the blocks provided him with an income for the rest of his life." http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore/highlights/highlight_objects/pd/a/albrecht_d%C3%BCrer_the_four_horsem.aspx And here is a discussion of a book on Durer's work, inspiration, and "spiritual odyssey": "David Hotchkiss Price convincingly demonstrates that Albrecht Dürer's art is best understood within the context of Christian humanist values. Price underscores this literary engagement because he argues that it provided the inspiration for Dürer to do for art what the Christian humanists were doing for biblical philology. (...) According to Price, this philosophical approach permitted Dürer to synthesize the written and visual word into a new genre: the illustrated humanist book of faith. Thus, Price argues against the traditional view that Dürer was simply influenced by Renaissance humanism; instead, Price maintains that Dürer was an active contributor to the northern humanist movement...

How did Albrecht Durer's work reflect the influence of the italian renaissance? by Q: for history homework, cut it down to a few sentences

A: Durer made many trips to Italy, working with the most famous artists, and became influenced by the Italian Renaissance. Among other things, he brought back with him the idea of individualism in art; and thus made many self-portraits. http://www.worldprintmakers.com/masters/durero/durer.htm

How large was Albrecht Durer's artwork? by Isabella G Q: I'm in 7th grade and am studying the Renaissance. Albrecht Durer, famous Renaissance artist, was known for his prints made from carving the image into wood or metal, putting ink on it, and then putting it on a large paper like a stamp. I understand that some believe that a skilled carpenter actually carved Durer's paintings, but with each peice of artworks extreme detail and fullness, how large was the block of wood or metal it was on? I asked my teacher, but he said he wasn't sure. Can someone help? Also, how time consuming was the engraving? I assume it must have taken months.

A: Durer's works, like most prints of the time, aren't large - about A4 - but most were his own. Yes, it takes time to make a wood engraving, but that's the nature of making art.

Why would Albrecht Durer support Martin Luther? by Morrissey G Q: im doing a skit and i am Albrecht Durer and Martin Luther is going to court, i am on Martin Luther's side but why am i? Why would Albrecht Durer support Martin Luther, ive done a lot of research but i still dont really understand why. Please help me.

A: Having rejected the Gothic art and philosophy of Germany's past, Dürer is the first great Protestant painter, calling Martin Luther ``that Christian man who has helped me out of great anxieties''. These were secret anxieties, that hidden tremulousness that keeps his pride from ever becoming complacent. Although there is no reason why any Catholic artist should not have painted The Four Apostles, nor why such an artist should not equally have chosen first John and Peter (indisputably biblical Apostles), then Paul and Mark (mere disciples, not ordained by Christ in the Gospel story, though they were great preachers of the Word), it strikes a definitely Protestant note. These four embody the four temperaments: Dürer had a consistent interest in medicine and its psychological concomitants, since in some way he found humankind mysterious, and it was a mystery he pondered constantly. It is clear from his writings that Dürer was highly sympathetic to Martin Luther, and he may have been influential in the City Council declaring for Luther in 1525. However, he died before religious divisions had hardened into different churches, and may well have regarded himself as a reform-minded Catholic to the end. Martin Luther became professor of theology at the university, and Albrecht Dürer came under Luther's influence. Dürer and several of his friends on the Nuernberg City Council had begun attending services at the Augustinian Church. Several times Johann von Staupitz, Vicar General of the German Congregation of Augustinians and Luther's mentor, gave sermon series at the church. Dürer and his companions were deeply moved, as Luther had been, with Staupitz's emphasis on Christ's passion as the only key to forgiveness from sin. When Dürer returned to Nuernberg, he devoted almost all of his work to Biblical subjects. In 1525 Nuernberg became a Protestant city. The following year Dürer made a present to the Nuernberg City Council of The Four Holy Men -- Sts. John, Peter, Mark and Paul. Below the painting Dürer wrote, "All worldly rulers in these dangerous times should give good heed that they receive not human misguidance for the Word of God, for God will have nothing added to His Word nor taken away from it. Hear therefore these four excellent men, Peter, John, Paul, and Mark and their warning." gatita_63109

What does this quote by Albrecht Durer mean? by LinakeTay Q: The Renaissance artist, Albrecht Durer wrote a letter in 1506. Part of it states "Here I am a gentleman, at home I am a parasite." - Albrecht Durer, letter from Venice 1506 What do you think this means? Thanks so much! :)

A: In moving from Nuremberg to Venice, Durer reversed a whole direction of cultural priorities. The center to which German artists had previously looked were Bruges and Ghent in Flanders and the northern Gothic style shaped there by artists like the Van Eycks and Hugo van der Goes. What fascinated Durer was Italian humanism and all that flowed from the discovery of classical antiquity. But in fact, the trips to Venice did not radically change his style. They did give him confidence when Giovanni Bellini, the Venetian artist he most admired, became his friend. He said, "Here I am a gentleman, at home I am a parasite.", from which it appears that Durer knew more about the business of being a successful expatriate than most travelers ever discover. Durer married Agnes Frey in 1494, visited Venice that year for the first time, returned there again in 1505 and stayed until 1507. Meanwhile he built a great house which still stands on the castle hill in Nuremberg. Durer was almost piously devoted to his parents and had many warm friendships. Among them was that of a patrician, witty, intellectual widower-playboy named Willibald Pirkheimer who became his special intimate. http://sandpointantiquedesignmarket.blogspot.com/2010_05_01_archive.html just look up the quote on google.

What type of media was used by Albrecht Durer in Praying Hands? by Rach Q: (identify & explain) This question is for a art project on Albrecht Durer & we're studying what qualities he used to make his piece of artwork complete.

A: I believe it was a charcoal drawing with white highlights suspended in water and applied with a brush, like water colors. It was a preliminary sketch for an alter piece in Frankfurt. I believe it was a depiction of the Assumption of the Virgin. However, in the drawing I can clearly make out lines and cross hatching, so I wouldn't be surprised if he used a sharpened stick of charcoal or pen and ink.

Albrecht Durer..? by Beee. Q: What works of Albrecht Durer became famous early in his life? I'm doing a report on him because to me, he's obviously gained a lot of respect then. But how did he gain respect in justt the renaissance?

A: Durer was most famous in his lifetime for the wood engravings, such as the four horsemen of the apocalypse. I believe there was an engraved version of the praying hands, which today we know from prints and copies of the painting. Even in his own day -- well he was a man of his time. And his time was a time of great piety.
