This book examines the unique phemen of the pictorialization of Duerer's drawings. Representative Northern European painters in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries - such as Hans Schaeufelein, Jacob Hoefnagel and Jan Brueghel the Elder - reproduced Duerer's drawings, from single motifs to whole compositions in brilliant colors. This publication discusses the character of Duerer's workshop, preferences for drawings in Renaissance Germany, questions about authorship and ownership around works of art and the reception and adaptation of the Northern Renaissance art in the Prague Mannerism. It also demonstrates how in the course of the sixteenth century the evaluation of Duerer's drawings in Northern Europe changed.
