Indeed, looking at his self portraits, we discover the handsome man he was, with his face reflecting the purity of his soul and his intelligence. His contemporaries were impressed by his physical appearance, and his mental and moral qualities, which were no less remarkable. Albrecht the Christian was worth even more than the artist. Among all the artists investigating the classical in search of new principles of art, Albrecht Dürer stands supreme.
He studied the art principles, made rigorous theoretical observations, meticulously recorded the results of his investigations, and then he gave the resulting written instructions to his contemporaries. In the 16th Century, the city was the chief centre of the German artistic life. The revival of the classical spirit of Antiquity inspired the new, original conceptions in art. The movement influenced the art more than the literature, with engravings, woodcuts, and paintings reflecting the new thinking. The study of Dürer’s works requires more imaginative effort than the works of the Italian Renaissance artists.
In a typical German fashion, his art sometimes disregards the outward beauty of form, with the main intent of revealing the inner life. The art is subordinated to the revelation of the real, the inward, which latter was the subject of investigation for German philosophers like Kant and Schopenhauer. And, like in the case of early German painters, the expression of the inner, emotional life, remained the ideal of Dürer. A true humanist of the time, he has an impressive contribution to literature, and according to his friend Camerarius, Dürer was a master of natural sciences and mathematics. His most important work is “Human Proportions”, containing the results of a life-long, patient study. We cannot really understand the artist’s personality unless we immerse ourselves in the study of his art, life and times.
