    About

    The Large Horse by Albrecht Dürer (1471 - 1528); a foreshortened horse shown from behind, with its rear legs raised on a step, held by a soldier. Engraving, 1505.

    Dürer was born in Nuremberg, the son of a successful Hungarian goldsmith, and godson of leading German publisher Anton Koberger.

    In 1495, Dürer opened his own workshop in Nuremberg, a wealthy centre of trade which was situated at a focal point within the Holy Roman Empire. He took the radical step of producing high quality prints for an open market, and the first edition of his famous Apocalypse series of woodcuts was published in 1498.

    Signs of his increased social standing and prosperity were evident by 1509, when he became a member of the Great Council of Nuremberg, and purchased a house in the Zisselgasse (today the Dürer-Haus Museum).

    The foundation of the collection of Dürer's drawings in the British Museum, comes from Hans Sloane (1753) who bought in Holland in 1724 five volumes bound in black leather each stamped with the date 1637, that were originally compiled by the Dutch collector, Pieter Spiering Silfvercrona. (d.1652).
