About the Authors
  • Katherine Crawford Luber examines twenty-five paintings by the German artist in an effort to reevaluate his relationship to contemporary Italian art and his status as a painter. Luber explains how DÜrer appropriated Venetian techniques and suggests that the artist was engaged in the exploration of an atmospheric, coloristic perspective. She argues that this exploration unifies DÜrer's work and necessitates a reassessment of the critical division between his painted and graphic work.

    HNA Review of Books

    "The overall achievement of Luber's engaging book is to bring one to a closer, practical understanding of Dürer's relationship with Venetian art and art theory. More than this, she has provided the tools with which to consider fundamental questions about the relationship between praxis and thought, between technique and idea, questions that bring us to the very heart of the creative process." H-Net Andrew Morrall, Bard Graduate Center, New York
