Panofsky’S the Life and Art of Albrecht Durer.

18549. Panofsky’S the Life and Art of Albrecht Durer.

This paper critically reviews the 1943 monograph by Erwin Panofsky regarding the life and work of the German artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). The paper discusses the monograph’s contents and Panofsky’s methodology, as well as Panofsky’s views on the periods of Durer’s career, the influences on his work, and his contribution to the development of art history. In addition, Panofsky’s approach is compared with that of Fedja Anzelewsky, author of the 1980 book Durer: His Art and Life. It is concluded that Panofsky’s work is highly informative and useful, despite the occasional excesses in prose style. The major drawback to the work is its failure to include illustrative reproductions of Durer’s art within the text (as opposed to the black and white reproductions, not of the finest quality, that are included in an appendix). KEYWORDS: art history Panofsky Durer. MLA Style. 11 pages, 19 footnotes, 2 bibliographic sources. 2,589 words.
