Northern High Renaissance
Famous Art Pieces
Genre: Animal Portrait
Description: Used natural colors to keep the painting as real as possible, with lots of line and texture to give the look of real feathers.
Formal Properties: Strong use of line for details and texture.
Interpretation: Durer chose one small part of an animal that may have seemed insignificant and focused on every little detail in order to show it's importance and beauty.
Feeling: This artwork makes me happy, I like that he focused on one part of an animal instead of the whole.
Favorite: My favorite part of the piece is just every tiny detail he added.
Judgement: Art as realism.
