This incredible collection contains drawings in which Dürer experimented with many methods: the "anthropometric system," learned from Leonardo; the "exempeda" method, known to most as the man inscribed in a circle, the human figure in motion and much more. While some drawings are theoretical, many more are life studies that rank among the finest ever done. 170 plates.
