About Man Aged 93 (brush & ink on paper)

The artwork titled “Man Aged 93” is a creation by Albrecht Dürer, dated to 1521. This portrait is executed with brush and ink on paper and represents the Northern Renaissance art movement. The piece stands as a testament to Dürer’s mastery of the portrait genre. Currently, the artwork is housed in the Albertina museum located in Vienna, Austria.

The portrait depicts an elderly man who appears to be deep in thought, his age marked by the lines and creases on his expressive face. We can see intricate details in the man’s long, wavy beard and the texture of his wrinkled skin, which Dürer has rendered with meticulous attention. His hand is poised gently against his cheek, suggesting contemplation. The cap on his head adds character to the overall depiction, framing his face and drawing attention to his introspective gaze. The portrait is a remarkable example of Dürer’s skill in capturing the essence of human aging with dignity and profundity. The date “1521” and Dürer’s monogram are visible in the top left corner, indicating the artist’s completion and signature of the work.
