Melencolia I, 1514. Creator: Albrecht Dürer (German, 1471-1528) Featured Print

Melencolia I, 1514. Creator: Albrecht Dürer (German, 1471-1528)

Melencolia I, 1514. Although the title indentifies the subject as melancholy, the means by which Durer demonstrates this emotional state is complex, making Melencolia I the most analyzed and discussed of Durer's works. Durer personifies melancholy as a formidable female--her power originates in her ability to alter a man's temperament into a melancholic state. Immobilized by her lack of creativity, the winged goddess sits dispiritedly surrounded by the tools and instruments she has lost the inspiration to use. Among intellectuals, melancholy was often associated with introspective, educated people, even genius. Because artists were especially prone to melancholy, this image has been interpreted as Durer's spiritual self-portrait, implying that the artist identified with her creative plight

Anne of Cleves, 1539, (1909). Artist: Hans Holbein the Younger

Anne of Cleves, 1539, (1909). Henry VIII married Anne (1515-1557), a German Protestant princess, in 1540 for political reasons at the urging of his Chancellor, Thomas Cromwell. Hans Holbein painted this portrait of Anne for Henry who, finding her appearance on canvas to his liking, agreed to the marriage. In the flesh however, he found her considerably less attractive, and the marriage was annulled after only six months. Painting in the Louvre Museum, Paris. From Holbein - Masterpieces in Colour, by S. L. Bensusan. [T. C. & E. C. Jack, Frederick A. Stokes Co., London & New York, 1909]
