Summary note
"This book provides a comprehensive assessment of Dürer's depictions of human diversity, focusing particularly on his depictions of non-European figures. Heather Madar contextualizes those depictions within their broader artistic and historical context and assesses them in light of contemporary theories about early modern concepts of cultural, ethnic and racial diversity. The book also explores Dürer's influence on his followers, his later legacy with respect to his imagery of the other and the broader significance of Nuremberg to early modern engagements with the world outside Europe. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, Renaissance studies, and Renaissance history"-- Provided by publisher.
