Great Woodcuts of Albrecht Dürer by Albrecht Durer

★★★★ ☐ The publisher has provided a copy for review.
A master indeed. Enjoyed looking again at this artist's work through adult eyes. I grew up with Dürer's woodcuts in a children's book of Bible stories. Loved the selection and breadth of art enclosed in this volume.

Moderns have become accustomed to "instant art" and modern scribblings - but Dürer's work reminds us of the enduring excellent and craftsmanship by those artistic geniuses who dedicated their whole lives and gifting to art. Inexpensive and ongoing pleasure provided in this volume.
