    Durer: born May 21, 1471, Imperial Free City of Nürnberg -died April 6, 1528, Nürnberg), painter and printmaker generally regarded as the greatest German Renaissance artist. His vast body of work includes altarpieces and religious works, numerous portraits and self-portraits, and copper engravings. His woodcuts , such as the Apocalypse series (1498), retain a more Gothic flavor than the rest of his work.
