About Portrait of Hieronymus Holzschuher

The image you have provided does not seem to match the description you’ve given. The description refers to the “Portrait of Hieronymus Holzschuher,” which is an oil on panel painting created by the Northern Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer in 1526. The portrait, measuring 51 x 37 cm, is part of the collection at the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, Germany.

However, the image appears to be a coat of arms rather than a portrait. It features a shield with a centrally placed helmet and crest, which are typically associated with heraldic symbols used to represent an individual, a family, or an institution. The image showcases red heraldic beasts on either side of a shield, which is divided into four sections, each displaying different symbols. Above the helmet, the date “M.D.XXVI” is inscribed, indicating the year 1526.

Since this is not the portrait by Dürer, I cannot provide a description of the actual artwork based on this image. However, the original portrait of Hieronymus Holzschuher by Albrecht Dürer would depict the dignified likeness of Holzschuher, showcasing Dürer’s adeptness in capturing the essence of human character and the detailed realism that is characteristic of the Northern Renaissance movement.
