ArtFund Jersey are delighted to welcome back Eveline Eaton to tell the story of the German superstar, Albrecht Durer. Arguably the most important Germanic artist ever! Born in Nuremburg, Germany in 1471 Durer took centre stage in the art world at a time when attention was focused mainly on Italy and The Netherlands. His training as a Goldsmith stood him in good stead and this can be seen in his attention to detail and his ability to work in several media, revolutionising the world of print making. Not only was Durer an exceptional painter and draughtsman, he was also the first to write on art theory in the German language. His extensive graphic production carried Durer well beyond his native Nuremberg. Famous works include: the hare, owl and praying hands and his AD monogram is easily recognisable.
