  • Painting Description

    Heinrich Aldegrever's "Self-portrait At The Age Of 28" (b., Holl. 188) is a remarkable example of early 16th-century German printmaking, showcasing the artist's technical prowess and introspective depth. Created in 1530, this self-portrait etching is notable not only for its artistic quality but also for its historical significance, as it offers a glimpse into the life and self-perception of one of the Northern Renaissance's prominent figures.

    Aldegrever, born in Paderborn around 1502, was a versatile artist known for his engravings, woodcuts, and paintings. He was heavily influenced by Albrecht Dürer, whose meticulous attention to detail and innovative techniques left a lasting impact on Aldegrever's work. This self-portrait, executed when Aldegrever was 28 years old, reflects his mastery of line and form, as well as his ability to convey complex human emotions through the medium of print.

    In "Self-portrait At The Age Of 28," Aldegrever presents himself with a direct and contemplative gaze, engaging the viewer with an air of introspection and confidence. The fine lines and intricate details of the etching highlight his skill in capturing the textures of hair, skin, and fabric, while the subtle play of light and shadow adds depth and realism to the image. The artist's attire, typical of the period, and the absence of elaborate background elements focus the viewer's attention squarely on his visage, emphasizing the personal and intimate nature of the portrait.

    This self-portrait is also significant for its inscription, which includes Aldegrever's age and the year of creation, providing valuable context for art historians and scholars. It serves as a testament to the artist's self-awareness and his desire to document his own likeness for posterity. Through this work, Aldegrever not only asserts his identity as an artist but also invites viewers to ponder the nature of self-representation and the role of the artist in society.

    Overall, "Self-portrait At The Age Of 28" stands as a compelling artifact of the Northern Renaissance, reflecting both the technical achievements and the introspective spirit of Heinrich Aldegrever.
