Albrecht D√ľrer¬†(/ňądj ä…ôr…ôr/;[1]¬†German:¬†[ňą Ēalb Ā…õ√ßt ňądyňź Ā…ź];[2][3][1]¬†Hungarian:¬†Ajt√≥si Adalbert; 21 May 1471 ‚Äď 6 April 1528),[4]¬†sometimes spelled in English as¬†Durer¬†(without an¬†umlaut) or¬†Duerer, was a German¬†painter,¬†printmaker, and¬†theorist¬†of the¬†German Renaissance. Born in¬†Nuremberg, D√ľrer established his reputation and influence across Europe in his twenties due to his high-quality¬†woodcut prints. He was in contact with the major Italian artists of his time, including¬†Raphael,¬†Giovanni Bellini, and¬†Leonardo da Vinci, and from 1512 was patronized by¬†Emperor¬†Maximilian I.

D√ľrer's vast body of work includes¬†engravings, his preferred technique in his later prints, altarpieces, portraits and self-portraits,¬†watercolours¬†and books. The woodcuts series are more¬†Gothic¬†than the rest of his work. His well-known engravings include the three¬†Meisterstiche¬†(master prints)¬†Knight, Death and the Devil¬†(1513),¬†Saint Jerome in his Study¬†(1514), and¬†Melencolia I¬†(1514). His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his woodcuts revolutionised the potential of that medium.

D√ľrer's introduction of¬†classical motifs¬†into Northern art, through his knowledge of¬†Italian artists¬†and¬†German humanists, has secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the¬†Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatises, which involve principles of mathematics,¬†perspective, and¬†ideal proportions.
