Albrecht Dürer's perspective

Albrecht Dürer is much known for his copper engraving, but he also devised the means in which the line, geometry and perspective were an essential part of composing. The devisions of the human body could be calculated mathematically and Dürer stressed that with drawing any object, the proportion and weight was needed to give a realistic sense of what was observed.

With these superimposed portraits painted between the period 1493 and 1500,
Albrecht Dürer viewed himself as an noble man, equating himself to the deity of the Christian faith. Yet, it is in his work, in the simple life of the peasant, and the representation of his Deutschland that bequeaths his legacy.
