Summary "This book is devoted to Albrecht Dürer's early art and the circumstances of the young painter's life that enabled his unique work. Literature about Dürer fills library shelves. Does this mean everything has already been said about the artist? Far from it, according to the scholars at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and their international partners in the Early Dürer Project."--Dust flap
