Таинственный и гениальныйнемецкий творец, чьи интересыне ограничивались только живописью или гравюрой. Альбрехт Дюрер был настоящим пророком германского Возрождения. Его кисть создавала портреты императоров и сочувствовала нищим крестьянам. Он создавал пушки и учил ландскнехтов, как правильно разрушать замки и крепости. И в то же время он вырезал на гравировальных досках изумительную серию офортов, проклинавших ужасы войны и всех гибельных для человечества напастей. Альбом с репродукциями великого Дюрера.
