Description
Summary:"This book provides a comprehensive assessment of Dürer's depictions of human diversity, focusing particularly on his depictions of non-European figures. Heather Madar contextualizes those depictions within their broader artistic and historical context and assesses them in light of contemporary theories about early modern concepts of cultural, ethnic and racial diversity.
