A man of extraordinary talent and vision

Albrecht Dürer, to many the greatest German artist ever, was a man of extraordinary vision who trained initially as a goldsmith and then as a painter. He recognized the enormous potential of prints as an inexpensive way to sell his work.

“He created a new market niche that he dominated since the early 1500s, making him, in his 20s, the best-known artist in Europe.”
