The quality and wide range of his works and themes, both in terms of content and formal aspects, are also astonishing.Durer's woodcuts and copper engravings made him famous throughout Europe; today he is still regarded as the greatest master of his age in the field of printed graphics.Albrecht Durer the Elder (1427-1502) came from a small Hungarian village called "Eytas" close to "a small town called Jula." The place being described is now known as Ajt, Durer wrote later in life, on 25 December 1523, based on records kept by his father.Even today it has not been shown beyond doubt whether the Durers came from Hungary or Germany.They demonstrate both Durer's careful method of working when preparing his paintings and his special interest in the surrounding nature.Fortunately, and in contrast to other artists, many of his works still exist, enabling a comprehensive picture of his work to be created.While from the 16th to the 19th centuries it was mainly artists and collectors who promoted the adoption and admiration of Durer and his works, an academic reappraisal of his work, which was able to base itself on extensive source materials, began in the 19th century.
The academic examination of the figure of Albrecht Durer and his works has continued, with unbroken interest, right up to the present.
This extensive heritage does not merely, however, make it possible to gain a clearer picture of the character and figure of Durer than is possible for other artists of his age; his written legacy enabled Durer to take up a unique position in his age, in which he also differs from his predecessors and successors.
