Durer's Praying Hands. Sketch by the German artist Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) of praying hands (1508). Durer did much to introduce the Renaissance style of art to northern Europe. He travelled to Italy in 1494 and 1505 and studied the new art. He was one of the first to study and use perspective, and his mathematical rigour meant his works were among the best of the time.
