old comment[edit]

I think the photo might be too big. Here is my screenshot to show you what I mean: Image:Snapshot1.png. --Greenmountainboy

OK, I've reduced it to 300px with a link to larger. Evercat 01:12, 22 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Same work?[edit]

"In 1513 and 1514 appeared the three most famous of Dürer's works in copper-engraving, The Knight and Death (or simply The Knight, as he called it, 1513)" would this be the same work that is mentioned in the first chapter, Ritter, Tod und Teufel or is there separate work with only The Knight and Death? -Lokakyy 10:34, 13 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Commons images - many not Durer at all[edit]

I have added a commons tag, but a good number of the images of paintings there have not been attributed to Durer for about a century, if ever. They need a good sort out.

Durer's Self Portrait in Film[edit]

Should it be mentioned that his self-portrait was used (albeit facially edited) in Bram Stoker's Dracula? The picture can be clearly seen as Harker comments on it whilst he is staying with the Count. The portrait is almost certianly Durer, but with Gary Oldman's face edited in to show a "remarkable likeness", as Harker comments.


Some of the gallery pictures have a quite striking colour, might benefit from a better display of the artist works.

Others are not there that are quite good or better .

Quite a lot of beautiful paintings and drawings, some of them should maybe go into the article gallery. Hafspajen (talk) 04:19, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

The two paintings of the "Young Venetian Women," or in a better cadence "Young Women of Venice," have slightly different titles, I discovered after trying to trace the 1505 painting for an hour or so. This first one, "Brustbild einer jongen Venezianarin" becomes "Bildnis einer jongen Venezianarin." The difference is in the first word: Brustbild" = "painting of usual sculptural bust area," which does not translate directly into English, while the second is merely "Bildnis" = "Portrait." I spent so much time on this because it seemed odd to me that a German's painting should not be even parenthetically graced with its original title. Plus, it was fun to work with the images. Looks a bit like Durer's 1505 painting was made with a novice's eye of the city, as the young woman in gold has a healthy brightness and life in her eyes, while by the time D. painted the second in the rfollowing year, perhaps he'd grown more intimate with the ugliness that graces every beautiful city: for the second young woman stares ahead as if she is in a trance, and while both women have the sharp triangular faces of the Venetian of the day, the first is alluring while the second is rather puffy. But all this is just interpretation, & not worth very much. In the end, my contribution is limited to the titles, "Portraiture/Portrait of a Young Woman of Venice"Rtelkin (talk) 06:04, 4 February 2017 (UTC)
