10 things to know about Albrecht Dürer (via @ChristiesInc):

Dürer travelled throughout his life, picking up inspiration and clients abroad on a regular basis. His first major trip was from 1490 to 1494 — his so-called wanderjahre (wonder years) — in which he visited Frankfurt and Basle among other places. A brief return to Nuremberg to marry (his father having organised a wedding with Agnes Frey, a wealthy local merchant’s daughter) was followed by another trip: this time across the Alps to Venice. There he became fascinated by the work of Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini (the former’s sculptural nudes and the latter’s Madonnas in particular). In subsequent decades, Dürer gained considerable renown in Italy, where even the art historian Giorgio Vasari — notably dismissive of artists from beyond Tuscany, let alone Italy — praised his ‘beautiful fantasies and inventions’.
