In episode 203, Ann and Tru finally start talking about an artist. While there are artists of note before Dürer--say Martin Schongauer--he really changes everything. From his monogram claiming authorship to marketing his works, Dürer is the man. So much so that Ann and Tru only get through half of his story. A second episode, episode 204, continues Dürer's story.
As promised in the episode, here is a link to the Metropolitan Museum's impression of The Fall of Man aka Adam and Eve. You can zoom in really tight and see all the crazy, wonderful detail by clicking on this link: The Fall of Man. Also, for fun, included with the images is an early state of The Fall of Man from the Albertina's collection. Always fascinating to see how an artist builds an image.
Images are credited to their collection/institution and are in the public domain. They appear in the order they are discussed.
