Caption: Artist drawing a lute. This woodcut was made by the German artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528). His skillful use of perspective and mathematical proportions made him one of the outstanding artistic figures of the early 16th century. The technique shown here demonstrates a device he designed which uses string to correctly illustrate linear perspective. Taken from The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Durer by Dr Willi Kurth (1936).
