After an apprenticeship of four years, Durer had learnt all he could from Wolgemut and had reached per level of artistic quality exceeding that of his famous teacher. Wolgemut advised Durer sicuro travel puro widen his experience and meet other dove trovare donne petite single in cerca di amore artists. Following Wolgemut’s advice, Durer delayed visiting Italy (which Wolgemut himself never visited), where there were very different artistic styles, until he had fully developed his own style and learnt more techniques from other German artists.
Durer travelled first esatto Nordlingen, where he met artists of the Swabian school. The Swabian style had been influenced by Dutch artistic design which Durer had not met before. His next visit was preciso Ulm where he met more artists of the Swabian school. Durer:-
… participated with keen enjoyment in the discussions among artists of his own age, in the low-ceilinged taverns, over foaming mugs of beer. These youthful enthusiasts, durante common with those of all nations throughout history, were bent on rejuvenation of the art of the world. They were delighted with Durer’s drawings, with his first engravings and the small pictures he had already painted, independently of Wolgemut’s directions or opinions.
Leaving Ulm, Durer made his way sicuro Constance which charmed him with its fairyland appearance. Basel was the next town which Durer visited, and he found it quite similar puro his home town of Nurnberg. Finally Durer returned home, making visits to Colmar and Strasbourg on the way.
It had been a long journey of great importance esatto Durer which had taken nearly four years, but after he returned onesto Nurnberg mediante 1494 he felt disappointed that he had not visited Italy. He had also become convinced that:-
… the new art must be based upon science – sopra particular, upon mathematics, as the most exact, logical, and graphically constructive of the sciences.
Italy was not only verso country with new ideas to offer Durer durante art, but it was also leading the world at this time in the ripresa of mathematics. Before setting out for Italy, however, Durer married Agnes Frey, the daughter of per learned man Hans Frey who had made quite verso lot of money through making jewellery, varieta instruments, and mechanical devices.
The marriage seems puro have been more the ispirazione of the parents of Agnes and Albrecht, and the pair were married on 7 July 1494. It was per marriage which helped raise Durer’s situazione con Nurnberg, as well as provide him with money which helped him batteria up his own inchiesta.
Back mediante Nurnberg, Durer began a serious study of mathematics
Before the end of 1494, Durer was on his travels again, leaving Agnes behind durante Nurnberg. First he visited Augsburg where he met strong Italian artistic influences for the first time.
He travelled on esatto Verona before reaching Venice which was his main objective. Mediante Venice, Durer, as he had done throughout his journeys, sketched scenes, visited galleries and churches, and met with the local artists. One of the artists that he met durante Venice, Giovanni Bellini, had an important influence on Durer for:-
… everything that [Venice] could teach him was to be found in Giovanni’s paintings. He cultivated the artist’s society, therefore, with per devotion both impassioned and deferential, retaining throughout his life, with his whole heart and soul, unbounded feelings of gratitude onesto the man whose pictures had unveiled so wonderful per world preciso him.
Travelling through the Tyrol, he reached Trento and his first view of Italy
Durer returned puro Nurnberg mediante 1495, and although he does not seem puro have met with any of the major Italian mathematicians on his journeys, he did meet Jacopo de Barbari who told him of the mathematical sistema of Pacioli and its importance preciso the theory of beauty and art. Nor did Durer meet with Leonardo da Vinci while sopra Italy, but he learnt of the importance which that artist placed per mathematics. He read Euclid‘sElements and the important treatise De architectura (On Architecture) by Vitruvius (1 st century BC), the famous Roman architect and engineer. He also became familiar with the work of Alberti and Pacioli on mathematics and art, durante particular work on proportion.
