Iris by Albrecht Durer
Cross stitch chart or counted cross stitch kit from the Scarlet Quince Nature Prints Fine Art Collection.
Albrecht Dürer (21 May 1471 – 6 April 1528) was a German painter, printmaker and theorist from Nuremberg. His prints established his reputation across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance ever since. His well-known works include the Apocalypse woodcuts, Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionised the potential of that medium.
This piece is a botanic print of a purple and lavender bearded or German iris. Several flowers are open and a bud is beginning to open. The background is not stitched, and the pattern is designed for white fabric. (1503)
