Vienna's Albertina Museum is home to the world's most comprehensive collection of works by Albrecht Durer. Durer's genius for drawing and painting rivaled those of his Italian contemporaries and his exquisitely detailed and delicately colored prints elevated the medium to new levels of accomplishment. This book includes many of Durer's most renowned masterpieces: his watercolors, The Hare and The Great Piece of Turf; his chiaroscuro drawings, The Praying Hands and The Elderly Man with a Beard; and his precocious silverpoint Self-Portrait at the Age of Thirteen - along with numerous other works from the Albertina's collection. Beautifully reproduced, these images convey Durer's fascination with the world around him, and his extraordinary ability to bring that world to life.
