Albrecht Dürer's "Small Passion" Series

Albrecht Dürer (b. Nuremberg, 1471- 1528) has long been recognized as one of the most influential artists of the European Renaissance and one of the finest printmakers in the history of art. Thirty-five woodcut illustrations and the title page of Dürer’s Small Passion, a book published in 1511 representing scenes from the life of Christ, are currently on display on the Moss Mezzanine, along with an example from Dürer’s Large Passion (1497). Dürer’s masterful execution of these prints, combined with their wide distribution, cemented his reputation as a leading innovator and draftsman.

This essay was considered one of the first major works of Feminist art history, it has become a set text for those who study art internationally, and it is influential in many other fields.
