About the Event

In 1515, the German printmaker Albrecht Durer produced a bestselling woodblock print of an Indian rhinoceros. He rendered the animal in extraordinary detail, right down to the hairs bristling its chin. Remarkably, Durer had never seen a rhinoceros first hand. He relied instead on written descriptions produced in Lisbon of an Indian rhinoceros, the first seen in Europe for over a thousand years.

delivered by Isaac Nugent, professional Artist and Art Historian, curatorial assistant National Gallery London.
