In keeping with the apparent new  German theme, I present a selection of artworks concerning Durer’s Italian experience.
Albrecht Durer, The Castle at Arco, 1494 or 1505

Albrecht Durer, The Castle at Arco, 1494 or 1505

One of his Italian landscapes, prehaps the first pure landscapes in postclassical western art.

Durer was as strong admirer of Giovanni Bellin, as can be seen in the following pair of works:

Giovanni Bellini, Madonna and Child. Late 1480s
Giovanni Bellini, Madonna and Child. Late 1480s
Albrecht Durer, Madonna and Child.  1496/1499

Albrecht Durer, Madonna and Child. 1496/1499

I’ve always wondered if these painting have ever been exibited together.
