Albrecht Altdorfer was a German painter and engraver of the Renaissance. He is regarded as the founder of the Nuremberg minor masters and, together with Wolf Huber, was an important representative of the Danube School, a style movement that spread from Bavaria, along the Danube, to Austria. The artists went down in history under the nickname "Wild Painters from the Danube". His painting stands out from the paintings of others. He draws faces full of emotions and bodies with distorted proportions; heads are smaller than the rest. His paintings are in motion and tend to exaggerate.

Little is known about the life of Albrecht Altdorfer. He was born between 1480 and 1485 and grew up in a family of artists. His father, Ulrich Altdorfer, was a well-known painter in Regensburg. His older brother Georg also worked as a painter in Bavaria. Certainly art was an important topic in the family and the children were encouraged in this area by their parents from an early age. In 1505 Albrecht Altdorfer was mentioned in writing for the first time in the citizens' book of the city of Regensburg. At the age of 25 he was granted the Bürgerecht (citizens' rights), which entitled him to run his own business or to buy a plot of land. By the way, at the beginning of the 16th century Regensburg was a flourishing commercial metropolis. This was due to the direct ship connection to Vienna, to the imperial court. During these years Altdorfer must have probably also become aware of the Nuremberg painter Albrecht Dürer, who was an outstanding representative of the Renaissance. Dürer represented the Classical period in his paintings, while his pupil Altdorfer wanted to break pre-defined boundaries and increase the expression of paintings. Altdorfer proves his great talent, even in tiny art engravings. He always makes graphics for sale.

Later on, he studied biblical figures. He implements them masterfully, but always with his own unique perspective. He puts figures in the centre and perfects lighting moods. Again and again he immerses his figures and the sky in an impressive play of colours of light and dark. His fame is growing. In 1528 he was even nominated by the citizens of Regensburg for the election for the mayor's office. He rejects. Art remains his only great passion. The painter's former residence is still located in Regensburg's old town today. It is a large, beautiful house that he once lived in with his wife. On the lower floors he set up workshops and exhibition rooms. He educated. He passed on his knowledge to young people. It is assumed that he travelled to Italy again and again for a certain time. Here he probably also learned the technique of the three-tone, which he used again and again in his later paintings. Regensburg still preserves the knowledge of the artist for posterity. Albrecht Altdorfer was an ingenious picture creator of the 15th century. © Meisterdrucke
