Dürer (Albert)

,

of Nürnberg, called by his countrymen “the prince of artists,” and by many the “Chaucer of painting.” (1471–1528.)

⁂ Dürer’s portraits of Charlemagne and other emperors are nnrivalled; but Lucas Kranach’s (1472–1553) portraits of Luther and other reformers are said to run them very close in merit.
