Durer – the most amazing printer

There’s a BBC radio program that discussesAlbrecht Dürer (1471–1528)
and his prints.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b03q59w4/  The narrative is fascinating. If only the program included images of his work.  

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a series of pages dedicated to his life and work http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/hd/durr/hd_durr.htm 

There’s a house museum in Nurnberg dedicated to the artist http://museums.nuremberg.de/duerer-house/

The prints are so fine, fluid, and realistic. It seems as though the images could just walk off the page.  My favorites are the rabbit  and the rhinoceros.
