is still relevant today. Dürer was counted among the leading intellectuals of the sixteenth century. He witnessed the coming Reformation and made the acquaintance of men such as Erasmus, Martin Luther, Melanchthon, and the Emperor Maximilian. Though he created works of art for wealthy patrons, he made his woodcuts affordable for ordinary people. In this way, Dürer brought the Bible to a wide audience through his brilliant illustrations of the book of Revelation and other themes. This biography includes over twenty illustrations by Albrecht Dürer, who wrote: "Painting is a useful art when it is of a godly sort and employed for holy edification." The life and art of Dürer is food not only for young artists, but for all who seek beauty and truth. This book is written on a 5th-6th grade reading level, but younger children will enjoy having it read aloud to them.
