German Renaissance artist Albrecht Durer started his career as a goldsmith in his father's shop. Albrecht Durer's paintings, depicting religious figures, portraits, and self-portraits, were inspired by artists like Antonio Pollaiuolo and Andrea Mantegna. The Italian influence in Albrecht Durer's paintings is evident, as he used classic oil painting techniques to create pieces similar in style to artists like Michelangelo.
Albrecht Durer's prints, such as an early woodcut series Apocalypse, created in 1498, show a more macabre side to the artist's religious depictions. In the 1500s, his carvings began to move back toward contemplative pieces with softer imagery. Adam and Eve and The Last Judgement, Albrecht Durer's woodcuts of 1504 and 1510, respectively, have an uplifting feel and soft romanticism to them.
