Dürer, Albrecht

Dürer, Albrecht (Nürnberg, 21st of May 1471 – Nürnberg, 6th April) the most well-known artist of the German Renaissance, painter, graphic, carver. He learned from excellent masters in every part of Europe. He made illustrations for several books. He was an honoured citizen of Nürnberg. From 1512 until the emperor’s death in 1519, he worked in the court of Maximilian I. He left an indelible mark on the art of Nürnberg. He designed Ferdinand I’s combined Hungarian and Czech crest in 1527. This crest served as a model for the crest seen on the Tabula Hungariae. The only difference between these two crests is one small knob on the crown, which can be attributed to oversight.
