Artist of the Reformation: The Story of Albrecht Dürer

By Joyce McPherson

“A biography of Albrecht Dürer, one of the most influential artists of the Renaissance and Reformation. In addition to creating hundreds of engravings, woodcuts, drawings, and paintings, he wrote books on geometry, fortification, and human proportions. He explored the meaning of beauty in his art textbook, which was called Food for Young Artists. The Christian worldview which he brought to the field of art is still relevant today. Dürer was counted among the leading intellectuals of the sixteenth century. He witnessed the coming Reformation and made the acquaintance of men such as Erasmus, Martin Luther, Melanchthon, and the Emperor Maximilian. Though he created works of art for wealthy patrons, he made his woodcuts affordable for ordinary people. In this way, Dürer brought the Bible to a wide audience through his brilliant illustrations of the book of Revelation and other themes.” Ages 10-12.

Albrecht Dürer (Art for Children)

I really enjoy this series of art books from Ernest Roboff. They are beautifully laid out and illustrated and give unique glimpses at the artsts they cover. They are no longer in print, but you can sometimes find them used on eBay or Amazon. Ages 9-12.
