Parution : David Ekserdjian, “Albrecht Dürer Art and Autobiography”, Chicago, Chicago University Press, 2023

An exploration of the life and works of German artist Albrecht Dürer and his self-obsession.

The Italian Renaissance birthed the modern sense of self, and no artist from the period compares with Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) in terms of the almost obsessive interest he displayed in his own life. Dürer’s works are filled with personal details from his day-to-day, his dreams, and his escapades. In this brief biography, David Ekserdjian explores Dürer’s life and times—his studies, travels, and influences—as well as his paintings, drawings, and prints. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Renaissance or Northern European art.
