Stag Beetle by Albrecht Dürer - 1505 - Sublimation, Tote Bag
Stag Beetle by Albrecht Dürer (German, 1471 - 1528) - created in 1505.
"It is indeed true," wrote Albrecht Dürer, "that art is omnipresent in nature, and the true artist is he who can bring it out." The Stag Beetle is one of Dürer's most influential and most copied nature studies, says the Getty Museum. 'Singling out a beetle as the focal point of a work of art was unprecedented in 1505, when most of Dürer's contemporaries believed that insects were the lowest of creatures. Dürer's keen interest in nature, however, was a typical manifestation of the Renaissance. This beetle, rendered with such care and respect, seems almost heroic as he looms above the page.'
