About Anna selbdritt

“Anna selbdritt” is an artwork by Albrecht Dürer, a seminal figure of the Northern Renaissance. The genre of the work is a sketch and study, and it exemplifies the meticulous detail and pursuit of realism typical of the art movement during that time.

This artwork features a delicate and intimate scene that appears to illustrate three figures. The figures are sketched with fine, detailed lines, suggesting the artist’s study of form and composition. The central figure seems to be a woman holding an infant, while the figure on the right side appears to engage with the mother and child. The clothing of the figures is rendered with particular attention to the folds and drapes, indicating the textile’s texture and weight, a common trait of Dürer’s detailed drawing style. The overall impression is one of tenderness and quiet interaction between the figures.

In the bottom right corner of the drawing, a monogram which is likely the artist’s signature, and a date which might indicate the year when it was created can be seen. The sketch is lightly drawn, many parts are not fully defined, suggesting it is possibly a preliminary study for a more finished piece.
