Attributed to Albrecht Dürer: 'The Painter's Father'

Explore the paintings

The painter's father was a Nuremberg goldsmith of Hungarian origin. Dürer had already painted him seven years earlier, in 1490.

Several versions of the portrait are known. This one is probably the picture presented to Charles I by the City of Nuremberg in 1636. Although the face is quite skilfully painted, the painting is probably a copy after a lost original by Dürer.
