ALBRECHT DÜRER (1471-1528)

The Sea Monster


RCIN 800080

Dürer gave no clue about the subject of this engraving, which he mentions in his Journal, and its precise meaning is not known. It shows a marine abduction: the woman is being carried away from the anguished group in the background. The print is also a study of the nude female figure, which Dürer explored in a number of works at this time, among them Pupila Augusta.
