Dürer is the best of German artists and such a lot consultant of the German brain. He, like Leonardo, was once a guy of amazing actual popularity, nice attraction of demeanour and dialog, and psychological accomplishment, being good grounded within the sciences and arithmetic of the day. His ability in draughtsmanship was once outstanding; Dürer is much more celebrated for his engravings on wooden and copper than for his work. With either, the ability of his hand used to be on the carrier of the main minute statement and analytical study into the nature and constitution of shape.

He remained profoundly Germanic in his stormy penchant for drama, as was once his modern Mathias Grünewald, a gorgeous visionary and insurgent opposed to all Italian seductions. Dürer, regardless of all his stressful power, ruled conflicting passions through a sovereign and speculative intelligence related with that of Leonardo. He, too, was once at the border of 2 worlds, that of the Gothic age and that of the trendy age, and at the border of 2 arts, being an engraver and draughtsman instead of a painter.
