Dürer by Peter Strieder ( Book )
148 editions published between 1929 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Drawing on the latest research, this luxurious volume presents an exciting new interpretation of Dürer, both as a man and as an artist. Dürer's prints and drawings inspired centuries of artists both during his life and after his death. Yet his talent as a painter and colorist, and his enthusiasm for the scientific world have not been widely appreciated. Dürer's influence was both international and intergenerational; indeed Picasso claimed tohave been inspired by the sixteenth-century artist. Reproduced in stunning detail and including illustrations of Dürer's most famous prints and drawings, a catalog raisonne of his paintings, and biographical research, this book presents a Dürer for the twenty-first century. Producing more self-portraits than any other artist of his day; mass marketing his best-selling prints; even inventing his own monogram logo; Albrecht Dürer was commercially astute long before today's generation of slick self-promoters and savvy mega-bucks artists. There are 55 extant Dürer's, of which 17 are in dispute. Using the very latest scientific research, this book puts all arguments to bed resulting in the definitive catalogue raisonne of the paintings. Not since 1971 has such a feat of painstaking research been attempted. After an almost 40-year wait, the truth behind the man and his art can finally be revealed."--Publisher's website

The essential Dürer ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), perhaps the most famous of all German artists, embodies the modern ideal of the Renaissance man--he was a remarkable painter, printmaker, draftsman, designer, theoretician, and even a poet. More is known about his thoughts and his life than about any other Northern European master of his time, since he wrote extensively about himself, his family's history, his travels, and his friends. His woodcuts and engravings were avidly collected and copied across Europe, and they quickly established his reputation as a master. Praised in life and elegized in death by such thinkers as Martin Luther and Erasmus, he served Emperor Maximilian and other leading church and secular princes in the Holy Roman Empire. Although there is a vast specialized literature on the Nuremberg master,This book fills the need for a foundational work that covers the major aspects of his career. The essays included in this book, written by leading scholars from the United States and Germany, provide an accessible, up-to-date examination of Durer's art and person as well as his posthumous fame. The essays address an array of topics, from separate and detailed studies of his paintings, drawings, printmaking, and sculpture, to broader concerns such as his visits to and interactions with Venice and the Netherlands, his personal relationships, and his relationships with other artists. Collectively these stimulating essays explore the brilliance of Durer's creativity and the impact he had on his world, exposing him as an artist fully engaged with the tumultuous intellectual and religious challenges of his time

The early Dürer by Thomas Eser ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is devoted to Albrecht Dürer's early art and the circumstances of the young painter's life that enabled his unique work. Literature about Dürer fills library shelves. Does this mean everything has already been said about the artist? Far from it, according to the scholars at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and their international partners in the Early Dürer Project. Their essays deal with the core phenomena of Dürer's early work, ranging from the artist's biography and surroundings to the question of Dürer's role as the archetype of the modern artist. New sociological approaches allow us to interpret Dürer's 'ideal neighborhood' as a source of inspiration for the artist's work, resituating Dürer in the artistic context of his time, at an exciting crossroad between the imitation of traditional painting and the self-conscious renewal of his profession."--book jacket
Albrecht Dürer and the Venetian Renaissance by Katherine Crawford Luber ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Albrecht Durer and the Venetian Renaissance examines twenty-five paintings by the German artist in an effort to reevaluate his relationship to contemporary Italian art and his status as a painter. Providing a technical analysis of these works, Katherine Crawford Luber explains how Durer appropriated Venetian techniques and suggests that the artist was engaged in the exploration of an atmospheric, coloristic perspective. Luber also demonstrates how the Venetian alternative to "scientific" perspective was integrated not only in Durer's late paintings but also in his later graphic oeuvre, which necessitates a reassessment of the critical partition of his painted and graphic work. Emphasizing Durer's careful working methods, Luber argues that technique is an interpretable and critically important aspects of artworks that should be integrated into mainstream art historical studies."--BOOK JACKET

Nature's artist : plants and animals by Albrecht Dürer by Victoria Salley ( Book )

"Durer's drawings and watercolours show the artist at his most accessible, revealing his techniques and the masterly use of his media. No woodcut engravers, printers or apprentices come between Durer and the viewer. This contributes to the particular fascination of such sheets as The Large Piece of Turf or Hare. The introductory essay, portraying Durer as a passionate observer of his surroundings and an exceptionally gifted artist, is followed by thirty-five, high-quality reproductions of his most popular drawings and watercolours.
