Dürer’s Hands

From his first extant sketch through his late-career investigations of human proportion, Albrecht Dürer often used himself as a model. The lecturer, the author of a landmark book on self-portraiture, focuses on the earliest sketches Dürer made of his hands, examining the emergence of a quintessentially modern concept in art: the artwork as personal expression of its creator.
