Albrecht Durer was a German artist and theorist, commonly thought to be the impetus for the Northern Renaissance. Born in Nuremberg in 1471, Durer learned the basics of goldsmithing from his father, before being apprenticed to artist Michael Wolgemut at age fifteen. Durer learned painting, printmaking, and woodcutting for books from Wolgemut. Durer frequently visited Italy and was influenced by the advanced artistic style. The Italian classical motif can be seen in Durer’s work, and is one of the ways in which Durer influenced the Northern Renaissance. He taught himself engraving, and spent several periods producing only engravings and woodcuts. Durer’s advancements in woodcutting revolutionized the art form.
