About Portrait of Ulrich Starck

The artwork “Portrait of Ulrich Starck” was created by the renowned German artist Albrecht Dürer in 1527. It is a fine example of the Northern Renaissance art movement and falls within the genre of portrait. The piece is currently housed in the British Museum, located in London, UK.

This particular drawing presents a man in profile, turned to his right. He has curly hair and a detailed, curly beard, showcasing the meticulous attention to texture and realism typical of Dürer’s work. The execution of the portrait demonstrates precise, fine lines to contour the features of the face and clothing, revealing an attentive depiction of this individual’s appearance. The collar of his garment is ornately embellished, which also highlights the fashion of the time. In the upper right corner, the date “1527” is inscribed alongside Dürer’s monogram. The shading adds depth to the image, and the differing stroke intensities convey the play of light across the subject’s face and attire.
