St Christopher Facing to the Left
1521 Engraving, 119 x 75 mm Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York This engraving is obviously the later of the two versions of 1521. The meaning is here conveyed more poignantly, as the saint, instead of looking straight ahead, turns his head toward the Infant Christ. The hermit, in this case, is moved further into the background. This engraving is probably also based on the drawings prepared for Joachim Patenier. It can be noted in this connection that Patenier's painting at the Escorial shows a quite similar group, only in mirror image. Both engravings are based on the account of St Christopher in Passional oder der Heiligen Leben, Nuremberg, 1488, published by Anton Koberger, D?rer's godfather.Artist:D?RER, Albrecht Title: St Christopher Facing to the Left Painted in 1501-1550 , German - - graphics : religious

Albrecht Durer
b.May 21, 1471, Imperial Free City of Nernberg [Germany] d.April 6, 1528, Nernberg Albrecht Durer (May 21, 1471 ?C April 6, 1528) was a German painter, printmaker and theorist from Nuremberg. His still-famous works include the Apocalypse woodcuts, Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionized the potential of that medium. D??rer introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists, have secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatise which involve principles of mathematics, perspective and ideal proportions. His prints established his reputation across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Renaissance in Northern Europe ever since.
