Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 Excerpt: ...of the artist'; the realism of these weird engravings, and their minute accuracy of detail, are amongst the strangest facts about them; even their wildest conceptions are patiently worked out. Some writer, I forget at the moment whom, speaks of being 'haunted ' by Diirer's 'Melencolia.' He says that that grand brooding woman entered into his dreams and gave him no rest night or day. I can well understand this feeling. There is a certain vivid force about Diirer's creations that gives them a terrible reality: they have, so to speak, a body as well as a soul, and thus they lay hold of our memory with a strength that no mere disembodied imps of the imagination could exert. This realism of the fantastic imagination is a quality common to many great artists. What can be more weird, for instance, and at the same time more real, than some of the descriptions in Coleridge's 'Ancient Mariner'? 'The skinny hand so brown ' of that ancient man is laid upon us as well as upon the wedding gueSt, and we likewise are haunted by those dead men standing together on the rotting deck, and feel as though they fixed on us 'Their stony eyes That in the moon did glitter.' The whole poem, indeed," holds us fast by the same sort of mysterious fascination as that exercised on the wedding guest. This is precisely the effect that many of Diirer's engravings have. They lay hold of us, whether we will or no, and force us sometimes to turn from the admiring contemplation of much more beautiful creations of art, to listen to their sad strange stories. The print known by the titles of ' The Knight, Death, AND THE DEVIL, ' ' The Horse of Death, ' and ' The Christian Knight, ' is perhaps the most celebrated of all Diirer's engravings. All critics agree that it is one of his very finest work...
