This image displays the artwork “Child’s Head,” revealing the remarkable attention to detail characteristic of Albrecht Dürer’s work. The child’s face is sketched with delicate strokes that capture the softness of the youthful features and the texture of the hair. Light plays across the face, highlighting the child’s chubby cheek and the gentle curve of the nose. The eyes are rendered with care, giving them a lively and expressive quality.
