Commented Works: Albrecht Dürer (1498), with Cristina Iglesias Reply

Durer_26_PradoThis is another of the Prado Museum’s delightful little videos (6’51”) commenting on the works in their recent “La belleza encerrada. De Fra Angelico a Fortuny” show. Spanish artist, Cristina Iglesias, who lives in the U.K. and speaks excellent English, discusses Albrecht Dürer’s (Alberto Durero) 1498 Self Portrait at 26. Some of us wandered into the Prado when we were too young and, confronted unexpectedly with Durero’s prodigious work, were “imprinted” on it, like ducklings just out of the eggs. If you are one of us, you will like Cristina’s commentary on this little painting by the master.
