A master of many media, Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) excelled in the art of woodcut design. This modestly priced edition, comprising images both sacred and secular, offers an ideal introduction to his work. Scenes from the lives of Jesus and the saints and episodes from the Old Testament appear alongside a variety of subjects, including a portrait of the Emperor Maximilian and Dürer's coat of arms.
The ninety-four black-and-white illustrations feature brief captions with basic information regarding titles and dates. Long treasured by the world's art lovers, these familiar and lesser-known woodcuts are reproduced in excellent detail. They constitute an indispensable archive for professional art historians and critics as well as a source of pleasure for all others.

Original selection of illustrations from The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer, first published by W. & G. Foyle, Ltd., in 1927.
