German. 1471-1528. "At the commencement of the sixteenth century, the two great masters of engraving appeared--Duerer, the head of the German, and Raimondi of the Italian school. Duerer was an artist of the greatest technical powers and skill, endowed with little phantasy, but with a very active imagination. His example teaches us that one can be immeasurably great by a wise limitation within a given circle, and by a complete cultivation of even mediocre powers." B. 91. Original. [P. 7; see entries 03520540, 03520541, 03520542, 03520543, 03520544, 03520545, 03520546, 03520547, 03520548, 03520549, 03520550, 03520551, 03520552, 03520553, 03520554, and 03520555 for the group of works by this artist.]
