Among the numerous engravings of Albrecht Durer, on wood and metal, everyday scenes are not so common. Consider the engraving “A peasant with his wife in the market.” The simple-hearted face of a peasant who praises his goods, but the cunning face of his wife emphasizes the innate savvy of the villagers.
With what love all the details are depicted: a basket of willow twigs, a jug and a magnificent cock in the hands of a woman. What a masterly technique and ability to transmit the texture. Do not stop admiring the engravings of Durer.
