A free education in art history, part 2 - Albrecht Dürer

While roaming around art related sites looking for fun Renaissance stuff I stumbled across a German named Albrecht Dürer. Apparently he was an essential guy to check out, and when reading my huge book on drawing masters the selection of his stuff stands out in many ways. The amount of detail is ridiculous. I didn't know anything about him, except that I liked his style.

I don't like being clueless about things, or people that I like, so it's time for part 2 of the education in art history.

There are a few documentaries about him on Youtube. I like this one.
