Summary "Durer's drawings and watercolours show the artist at his most accessible, revealing his techniques and the masterly use of his media. No woodcut engravers, printers or apprentices come between Durer and the viewer. This contributes to the particular fascination of such sheets as The Large Piece of Turf or Hare. The introductory essay, portraying Durer as a passionate observer of his surroundings and an exceptionally gifted artist, is followed by thirty-five, high-quality reproductions of his most popular drawings and watercolours.
