About Endres Durer, brother of the painter, in profile

The artwork named “Endres Durer, brother of the painter, in profile” is a portrait created by the renowned Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer in 1514. It is part of the rich artistic heritage of the Northern Renaissance movement, known for its detailed work and a heightened interest in realism. The original piece is housed at the Albertina museum in Vienna, Austria, serving as a testament to Dürer’s skill in capturing human likeness and character.

The artwork showcases a profile view of a man, presumably Endres Dürer, the artist’s brother. His head is turned to the side, offering a clear outline of his facial features, from the bridge of his nose to his chin. He wears a hat that sits firmly on his head, tilted at an angle that adds a touch of personality and style. His attire includes a loosely draped garment with visible folds, capturing the texture and flow of the cloth. The fine hatching and detailed line work illustrate Dürer’s mastery over the medium, which appears to be pencil or charcoal on paper. The artist’s signature and the year of creation are visibly marked on the artwork, providing both authenticity and historical context. The precision of the drawing, with its careful shading and attention to fabric detail, indicates Dürer’s commitment to realism and his exceptional ability to render human features.
