Young Venetian by Durer

The Renaissance artist, Albrecht Durer has created some of the most memorable portraits of Italian contemporaries. Unlike the flat and often passionless works of his peers, Durer has instilled a realism that goes beyond the delicate appearance of his subjects. This representative portrait which shows a young Venetian in the early years of the 16th century, projects a personality that makes her look as much like someone living in the present. Her hair is parted in the center and her face framed in feminine curls, while the background is muted in order to bring her all the more into prominance. A master painter and engraver, Durer produced many religious works, with special emphasis on the Virgin and Child. He died in 1528 when he was only 56 years old. 15hqqy.
