Peasant with his wife in the market by Albrecht Durer

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.
