Albrecht Dürer: Knight, Death, and the Devil

I’ve just been to a show of master printmakers at the Seattle Art Museum. The most interesting to me was Albrecht Dürer’s amazing Knight, Death, and the Devil.

SAM provided magnifying glasses to view the prints up close, and this one is incredibly precise and detailed. I’ve uploaded an image that’s larger than actual size, so you can get a similarly close look. Click and zoom if you would like to pore over it.
