Albrecht Dürer’s Landscape with a Cannon of 1518
The matter of etching
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Albrecht Dürer’s Landscape with a Cannon is the final and most ambitious of the six etchings on iron that the artist produced between 1515 and 1518. This chapter discusses Dürer’s ambitions towards innovation and testing the limits of new techniques, as well as why he brought the seemingly incongruous motifs of landscape, cannon and foreign figures into conversation in a single image, and why he chose to do so in the novel medium of etching on iron.
