The artwork captures the profile of the subject with precise and delicate lines that convey both the physical likeness and the character of Dürer’s brother. Endres Dürer is depicted looking to the right, and his gaze seems pensive and distant, as if capturing a moment of introspection. The level of detail in the hair and the textures of the clothing illustrate Dürer’s mastery of the silverpoint technique. Each strand of hair and wrinkle in the fabric is delineated with such finesse that the viewer can easily perceive the subject’s status and personality. The inscription added by the artist provides a personal connection to the subject, giving the portrait a biographical dimension.
