Albrecht Altdorfer Famous Paintings
Altdorfer had made use of his capacity of imagination to bring out outstanding paintings of biblical and historical events. The landscape was extensively portrayed with great clarity. His very early art works were mostly drawings or engravings. A year later he commenced small paintings.
A couple of years on he took to wood cuts. Supernatural beings like witches and ghosts dominated his early themes. Portrayal of nature was esconced in mystery. In St George in the Forest he merges the dense jungle growth with the man. Use of high grade lighting effects create an eerie atmosphere.
Romanticism dwells in his landscape renditions. His etchings and engraved art forms are collectively reproduced in his Fall and Redemption of Man. As one who loved religious paintings and landscape art he used the subject of landscape as a genre itself in contrast to the human forms in the altar of St Florian.
His capacity to bring out pictures showing minute human figures against a vast landscape is amply demonstrated in The Battle of Alexander at Issus where his imaginative capability is at full bloom.
