A Tale of Two Artists

Dürer and Glockendon
February 11, 2020

At the beginning of the 16th century, the city of Nuremberg was the centre of the German Renaissance. Two wonderful artists worked there: the great painter and celebrated print artist, Albrecht Dürer, and Nikolaus Glockendon, one of Germany’s most talented manuscript illuminators. Dürer and Glockendon worked together on at least one commission and collaborated across two vibrant media: print and manuscript illumination. This video from our research library presents Dürer’s famous ‘three large books’, which are hardly ever seen together in commerce, as well as two of Glockendon’s illuminated manuscripts.

 

Also have a look at our video on theoretical treatises on the art of perspective, including an extremely rare collection of Albrecht Dürer’s cutting-edge artists’ manuals.
