About Women only

The artwork titled “Women only” was created by the German artist Albrecht Dürer in 1516, during the Northern Renaissance period. It fits within the genre painting category, and it can be found in Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, UK.

The image presented is a drawing that displays a scene with multiple figures, mostly female, as suggested by the title of the work. The central area of the drawing is occupied by several nude or partially draped women in various poses, some seated and some standing. The scene appears to be dynamic, with some figures interacting with each other. The woman in the foreground is seen with her back to the viewer, drawing attention to her muscular back and buttocks. The figures are sketched with fine lines, showcasing Dürer’s skill in capturing the human form. In the background, you can see an older woman and a man, clothed and looking towards the group of women, with the man extending his hand in a gesturing manner. The drawing embodies the Northern Renaissance’s attention to detail and interest in the human body. The artwork’s year “1516” and Dürer’s monogram are inscribed at the top, verifying its authenticity and period.
