About Six Goblets

“Six Goblets” is an artwork by Albrecht Dürer, dating around 1507, which exemplifies the intricate design work of the Northern Renaissance. Executed in pen, the drawing resides in a private collection and serves as a classic representation of design from that era.

The drawing features a selection of six goblets of various designs, all rendered with meticulous detail. Reflecting Dürer’s mastery of pen work, the goblets are depicted with a combination of fine lines and hatching, which gives them depth and volume. Each goblet stands on its respective pedestal and showcases a different pattern, reflecting the opulent aesthetic of the time. The artwork offers a glimpse into the decorative arts of the Renaissance period and emphasizes the union of utility and artistic embellishment characteristic of the Northern Renaissance. Additionally, Dürer’s signature can be noted on the lower right of the drawing, which further authenticates this piece as one of his creations.
