Albrecht Dürer was originally taught to draw by his father. As a goldsmith to trade, he seems to have implanted his craft's appreciation of fine detail into the young artist. Although Dürer, a German from Nuremberg, became one of the greatest painters of the Northern Renaissance, he is equally famous for his body of graphic work in printmaking and illustration.

Dürer was one of the first artists to view animals as a subject worthy of attention. At the beginning of the 16th century, the natural world of animals and plants was becoming a focus of interest as explorers and travelers were returning from distant lands with examples and illustrations of new species. Dürer shared this fascination for the subject which he revealed in many of his drawings, watercolours and prints.

    Wow… the coloring on the wing is amazing. Not being an artist myself, I don’t associate that type of precision and color saturation with water colors. Good luck with the quilting of the illustrated rhino.
