About Portrait of Captain Felix Hungersperg

The artwork titled “Portrait of Captain Felix Hungersperg” is a creation of the artist Albrecht Dürer, a prominent figure of the Northern Renaissance. This genre of this piece is a portrait, and it captures the likeness and character of the individual portrayed.

However, the image provided seems to be a mistake or a fabrication, because there is no known portrait by Albrecht Dürer of a person named Captain Felix Hungersperg. Albrecht Dürer was indeed famous for his detailed and lifelike portraits, but if this image is attributed to him and that sitter, it might not be an accurate representation of his works or the historical record.

While this description assumes that the facts provided are accurate, the image suggests there has been a mix-up. The artwork style indeed appears reminiscent of Albrecht Dürer’s line work, specifically his pen and ink drawings. It depicts a man in profile view with a prominent hat and a detailed beard, with meticulous attention paid to the curls and the costume’s folds and textures. It is a fine example of portraiture capturing individual features and clothing indicative of the time period. The style and technique used could very well be consistent with those of the Northern Renaissance period, where realism and attention to detail were highly valued. However, the actual subject and title of the piece as provided should be taken with caution.
