About the publication

This full-color brochure focuses on Albrecht Dürer’s interactions with leading humanists and scholars of the northern Renaissance. Ideas Dürer confronted in his prints stem in part from his conversations with these scholars and their knowledge of ancient and contemporary literature made available in first and newly published editions. The rise of humanism, revived classical sources, and new theological writings attracted Dürer and propelled his portraits of scholars Willibald Pirckheimer and Philip Melanchthon as well as his renderings of saints, biblical figures, classical gods and goddesses, sea monsters, satyrs, Satan, and Death. Included are numerous works from the Art Center’s Warburg Collection of Old Master Prints.
