German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) is held up as perhaps the most significant artist of his time, particularly for his printmaking. The son of a Nuremberg goldsmith, Dürer was introduced early to the tools in his father’s trade. Over the next few decades, he created woodcuts and engravings that revolutionized printmaking as a form of fine art. His technical brilliance grew, resulting in a trio of masterpieces: Knight, Death, and the Devil and Melencolia and Saint Jerome in His Study. Along with these three engravings, this calendar includes nine additional works—each equally intense and fascinating. Calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper.
