Knight, Death, and the Devil, Albrecht Dürer, 1513

Knight, Death, and the Devil, Albrecht Dürer, 1513

engraving, h 246mm × w 188mm. More details

This is Dürer’s most famous print, and it has been subject to widely differing interpretations in the course of time. The ‘christian knight’, the tireless warrior who cannot be deterred from his path, is probably depicted here. Neither Death on his emaciated overworked nag, nor the laughable, cross-eyed, pig-snouted Devil can stop him.
