Virgin and Child with a Monkey' by Albrecht Durer. Reproduction of a 1572 painting by Albrecht Durer (1471-1528) entitled 'Virgin and Child with a Monkey'. Albrecht (Albert) Durer did much to introduce the Renaissance to northern Europe. His skilful use of perspective and mathematical proportions made him one of the outstanding artistic figures of the early 16th century. He produced many portraits, woodcuts, engravings and watercolours and is best known for his work, 'Four books on Human Proportions', which was published posthumously in 1528.
