Albrecht Dürer (Neurenberg, 21 May 1471 - Neurenberg, 6 April 1528) was a German painter, draughtsman, maker of wood and copper engravings, art theorist, and humanist from the Northern Renaissance. The rise of the art of printmaking, parallel to that of book printing, made Albrecht Dürer the most popular and influential Northern European artist from that period. His studio specialised in printing techniques. Especially the copper engraving made a large print issue possible.
