ALBRECHT DÜRER (1471-1528)

Willibald Pirckheimer


RCIN 800112

Willibald Pirckheimer was a wealthy Nuremberg humanist. He was Dürer’s closest friend, and provided the artist with finance and encouragement. Pirckheimer used this print as a bookplate in his extensive library. The inscription was probably composed by the sitter: Portrait of Willibald Pirckheimer at the age of fifty-three. We live by the spirit. The rest belongs to death.
