DÜRER, Albrecht
(b. 1471, Nürnberg, d. 1528, Nürnberg)

The Peasant and His Wife at the Market

Engraving, 116 x 73 mm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Like almost all engravings after 1514, it is devoid of any landscape in the background. Everything, even the chickens, is shown with an intensity.
