    HI,I found this cool app which is useful for drawing students and the fans of durer paintings.

    Any art historian would agree that Albrecht Durer is a Renaissance polymath. At a very young age he dazzled the world by his versatility and artistic prowess. He is a fantastic draftsman, painter as well as writer. However, it is printmaking that he will really excel into, crating some of the most imaginative prints during his lifetime. He has everything that he would need: drama and tonal range, enabling him to create original creations that are unique on their own. His woodcuts, paintings, prints and drawings redefined the Renaissance era and established his as one of the greatest artists. If you are interested in learning about his work, like The Day of Wrath or The Four Horsemen, you will certainly be inspired by the app, Drawings by Durer to show you hundreds of amazing works of engraving and illustration done by the master himself. If you have seen most of his work, you will find that most of them are metaphorical in nature.

    I found this app at:
    When you take a look at the immaculate prints that he has created, you will see how much attention to detail was given to create such an imaginative portrayal that was never done anywhere until he created them. You will love this app if you like amazing Renaissance art since his works definitely redefined art and craftsmanship. You will be amazed by just looking in front of the screen, high resolution images of his amazing artistry. If you like woodblocks, the Renaissance time and the art of Durer, this app is definitely a fantastic option that you should choose to have.
