Blast From the Past

Albrecht Durer is one of the greatest artists from the Northern Renaissance. I know he has been dead for a while, but I just wanted to give him a little shout out because his detail and precision is AMAZING. Just take a second to look closely and appreciate all the tiny lines. One thing to also remember is that he probably did not have a rhino in front of him while drawing, so this rhino is totally from his head. Wow!


  1. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA) has a Durer exhibit right now. I saw it last week!

  2. slash, am writing an essay for my art history class on "The Foure Horsemen (The Apocalypse)"
