Episode 3: Drer (1471-1528) Far from the cultural centres of Italy, the German artist Albrecht Drer established his workshop in the city of Nuremberg, providing a centre for what was to become known as the northern Renaissance. Drers greatness lay in his ability to capture an unparalleled degree of reality in his art. Drer was not only a master of the woodcut and the etching, with which he created nightmarish visions of the apocalypse, but also became one of the earliest masters of the oil painting. Among his most accomplished works in oil are a number of beautifully executed self-portraits, which represent the very first individual figure self-portraits in the history of art. These triumphant depictions of his own image are testament to Drers own confidence in the growing status of the artist within his society. Like his Italian contemporary Leonardo, Drer carefully studied the world around him, often with a scientists eye, making detailed studies of plants and animals, some of which remain unrivalled to this day. Though he began life as a lowly craftsman, increasingly Drer became revered across Europe, employed to paint the portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian I. Drer established the artistic traditions of Northern Europe as equal to those of Italy, and for that he remains Germanys greatest artist. Works featured in this programme include Self Portrait Holding a Thistle (1493, Louvre, Paris), Book of the Revelation of St John (1498, Durers House, Nuremberg), Self Portrait at 28 (1500, Alte Pinakothek, Munich) and The Four Apostles (1526, Alte Pinkothek, Munich).
