About this book

Focuses on Renaissance artist Durer's studies of the natural world, and includes 34 watercolours and sketches. A master graphic artist, Albrecht Dürer was extremely influential as a printer, but it was his drawings and paintings that revealed a scientific curiosity about and sensitivity to the world around him. Alongside these stunning watercolours, Victoria Salley's essay explores Dürer's interest in nature.
