Discusses Goltzius’s motivation in engraving the Circumcision in the style of Dürer and the Adoration of the Magi in the style of Lucas van Leyden—two of his so-called Meisterstiche from the series done in 1594, suggesting that together the two prints illustrate “the sensibilities of self-appraisal and artistic proclamation” that were the inspiration for the series. Examines the Dutch artist’s response to Dürer and Lucas in the context of his knowledge of the Italian masters, arguing that in imitating Dürer and Lucas, Goltzius was transferring behavior that he had observed as part of the Mannerist movement during his travels in Italy to the north.

Friedrich Mielke. Berlin: Gebr. Mann, 1977. Dürer’s “aesthetic digression” in the Four Books of Human Proportion deals specifically with the passage at the end of Book III (Panofsky, 1955 p. 122).

Dürer-Studien. ) Discusses the intellectual circle that influenced the artist during those years, and the relevant contents of Nuremberg libraries that he would have known. Among the author’s most intriguing assertions is the idea that Dürer, aware of the discovery of a Roman statue in a plowed field in Carinthia (Kärnten), may have routed his second trip via Klagenfurt rather than the Brenner Pass, and drawn the portrait of the Windish (Slovenian) Peasant Woman on his way, rather than having seen her in Venice.
