Video Fridays: Albrecht Dürer's Artist Manuals

Fletcher Fund, 1919, Metropolitan Museum of Art

Detail from the Albrecht Dürer engraving, Erasmus of Rotterdam, 1526.

Today's lunchtime viewing is a 40-minute overview of Renaissance painter and printmaker Albrecht Dürer's innovations in art with Dr. Suzanne Karr Schmidt of the Newberry Library, created in association with Getman’s Virtual Bibliophile Holiday Gift Fair earlier this month.  

We’ve been lucky enough to have Karr Schmidt write for us a couple of times, most recently about an exhibition she co-curated, Renaissance Invention: Stradanus’s Nova Reperta.
