By the time of his death, he had created over 650 prints.

Albrecht Dürer

Dürerwas an influencial Renaissance artist born in Nuremburg, Germany in 1471. His travels also took him to Italy and the Netherlands where he created a vast body of work including wood cut prints, paintings, and engravings. His watercolours in particular made him one of Europe's first landscape artists.
