German painter, copper engraver and drawer for woodcut (1471-1528). He is among the most important and multilateral artists of the time between late middle ages and renaissance in Germany.

Initially, he learned the goldsmith craft. At fifteen, he was trained by a painter. Later, he traveled a few years, returned home, developed in painting the utmost versatility in the techniques known at that time.

His animal drawings point to the view on nature unadulterated by mythology and superstition, which was so characteristic for renaissance – they are unmatched in their observation accuracy and drawing execution. For Dürer already applies the statement made by Galilei more than one century later: “The great book of nature stays open in front of us – one has just to read in represent it.”

(Rebirth). Designation of art from about 1350 until the 16th century.

A state of mind that developed in Florence in the late 14th century that was retrospectively classified as rebirth of the classical ideals of Greek and Roman antiquity. During the 15th and 16th centuries, the Renaissance spread first over Italy and then all over Western Europe and determined the entire artistic creation. Such brilliant artists as Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dürer, Holbein, Cranach and Fouquet created their immortal works by following the humanistic premises and putting a human being in the center of all thinking.

Renaissance experienced its heyday in literature through dramatic works and poems of William Shakespeare.

At the end of the 16th century, Renaissance had to make way to the luxury of baroque before its ideas had their rebirth in the classicism of the 18th century.
