Date: German printmaker and painter, 1471–1528
Biography: German printmaker and painter, 1471-1528. In 1494 he traveled to Italy, where he remained until 1495. The trip had a strong effect and echoes of Italian art are apparent in most of his drawings, paintings, and graphics of the following decade. Italian influences were slower to take hold in his graphics than in his drawings and paintings. He died in 1528.
