Albrecht Durer was known as the “Leonardo da Vinci of Germany,” but he was a Renaissance trendsetter in the whole European art world. His impact reached far beyond Germany, partially because he traveled to other countries, but more because his Woodblock cuts were far beyond what anyone had ever created! However, Durer wasn't just an artist, he was also interested in theology, science, proportions, math, geometry, and epistemology (the study of the foundation of knowledge).
