Collecting masterworks is a fine art. None are more deserving than the print oeuvre of Albrecht Durer woodcuts and intaglios. For over five hundred years collectors have been exchanging his prints. It is for this reason that Durerpost.com derives its name.
The benefit for a collector and enthusiast of having English translations of the catalogues raisonne of Joseph Meder's, Durer-Katalog ein Handbuch Uber Albrecht Durers Stiche, Radierungen, Holzschnitte, Deren Zustande, Ausgaben Und Wasserzeichen, is evident. From the great cycles of Albrecht Durer woodcuts and engravings, they include: the Small Passion, the Large Passion, the Life of a Virgin, the Apocalypse, the Engraved Passion, as well as watermarks, and the deceptive copies of Johann Mommard of the Small Passion by Albrecht Durer.
Whether one is collecting Old Masters, Twentieth Century Masters, or Modern Masters, unless provenance can be established, the collecting of masterworks is only as good as its documentation. This information is gleaned in exhaustive studies; however, many are written in a language other than English. This is why we offer English translated catalogues raisonnes of Albrecht Durer woodcuts and engravings as well as other catalogues raisonnes of great masters through five centuries of art (free opt-in).
Durerpost.com is dedicated to the genius of Albrecht Durer woodcuts and intaglios. His graphic oeuvre changed the landscape of art forever by being the first artist, printer, and publisher in Western art. By providing as much information as we can and whenever possible with English translations of catalogues raisonnnes we, too, hope to keep sharing his brilliance for the next five hundred years.
