Albrecht Dürer the younger (also Duerer; * May 21 1471 in Nuremberg; † April 6 1528 ibid) was a German PainterGraphic designerMathematician and Art theorist. With its PaintingsDrawingsCopper engravings and Woodcuts he is one of the outstanding representatives of the Renaissance.

His most famous work is probably the Field Hare (1502). Mainly he devoted himself to the Copperplate and the template drawing for the Woodcut. Especially the copper engraving he tried very early; the first dated sheet is from 1497, which was certainly preceded by several others. From this time also come: The Revelation of John (1498), a series of 16 woodcuts, Adam and Eve (1504), a copperplate engraving and The prodigal son with the pigs (c. 1496)(Fig.), whose animal representation was decisive for the backbreeding of the so-called Albrecht Dürer Pig was.
