About Portrait of a man (Sebastian Brant)

The artwork titled “Portrait of a Man (Sebastian Brant)” is attributed to the renowned artist Albrecht Dürer and is estimated to have been created around the year 1520. As a masterwork of the Northern Renaissance, this portrait falls within the genre of portraiture, which was a prominent form of art during this period. Albrecht Dürer, known for his detailed and expressive works, was a pivotal figure of the Northern Renaissance movement.

The portrait itself is a drawing that showcases a high level of skill in rendering detailed facial features and textures of fabrics. The subject of the portrait wears a hat and is dressed in garments typical of the time, with a fur-lined coat and shirt visible underneath. The lines of the drawing are fine and precise, capturing the nuances of the subject’s expression and the softness of the fur. The man’s gaze seems contemplative, and his slightly tilted head adds to the thoughtful character of the portrait.
