Suicide of Lucretia by Albrecht Durer

Suicide of Lucretia by Albrecht Durer

In addition to religious and historical subjects, Dürer creates during this period a whole gallery of vivid and memorable images of his contemporaries. He writes his teacher Volgemut – a weak old man with a hooked nose and a parchment-skinned face, the imperious and proud Emperor Maximilian, the young intellectual of the time Bernhard von Resten; skillfully outlines the character of Goltshuera.

From under his cutter come the soulful engraved on copper portraits of humanist scholars Willibald Pirkheimer, Philip Melanchthon and Erasmus of Rotterdam. Remarkable drawings of these years: a touching portrait of the girl, imbued with a deep sense of the image of his native artist – brother Andrew and his mother.
