Durero, Albert

Albert Dürer, German painter and engraver, 1471-1528

Fishburn and Hughes: "A German painter, engraver and illustrator, whose treatment of the human figure combines the hallucinatory imagery of German late Gothic with the idealised vision of the Italian Renaissance. Dürer is here called a heretic because his representational painting can be said to break the Third Commandment: Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image or any likeness...' (Exodus 20:4). (63-64)
