    Hello CW friends and fellow collectors!!

    Today, we have a small bronze plaque with a sculpture of the famous Albrecht Durer painting titled "Young Hare". The original painting was completed in the year 1502. You'll notice the number "1502", above the artists initials, which are also printed the very same way on the original painting.

    Not sure how old the plaque is (probably not old at all). But, I do really like it. The plaque measures 4 inches by 4 inches.

    Albrecht Durer (1471 - 1528) was a German painter, printmaker and theorist from Nuremberg. His still-famous works include the Apocalypse woodcuts, Knight, Death, and the Devil (1513), Saint Jerome in his Study (1514) and Melencolia I (1514), which has been the subject of extensive analysis and interpretation. His watercolours mark him as one of the first European landscape artists, while his ambitious woodcuts revolutionized the potential of that medium. Durer's introduction of classical motifs into Northern art, through his knowledge of Italian artists and German humanists, have secured his reputation as one of the most important figures of the Northern Renaissance. This is reinforced by his theoretical treatise which involve principles of mathematics, perspective and ideal proportions.

    His prints established his reputation across Europe when he was still in his twenties, and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Renaissance in Northern Europe ever since.

    Thanks to all for stopping in for a look and for supporting my post!!

      My daughter (yes, she's an adult) would LOVE all of your rabbits... so cool!
    2. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      beyemvey,
      Thanks so much for the very quick love and comment! I think I'm the only person in my family that loves these. None of my friends or family (other than my CW family) have any interest in what I collect. Thanks again so very much!!!
    3. Karenoke Karenoke, 5 years ago
      I enjoy your collections. And all the informational education you share, Thank You!
    4. roddyq roddyq, 5 years ago
      Great post Scotty!! He achieved much in his short life.
    5. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Thank you Karen!! So glad you enjoy it. I hope they got your tree moved safely without any damage to you or your house.
    6. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Roddy,
      Thanks friend! Yes, he did achieve quite a lot during his short life. He even did a self portrait that is flawless!!

      Hey Mr J, this is a great piece AND post! Very interesting to learn about and I love that this is as small as it is. You know, small but packs a punch! ;)
    8. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Thank you Sue!!
      I'm glad you like my bronze plaque! I have quite a few smalls that are my favorites, trunks and rabbits.

      This is great. How can you find out how old it is, just out of curiosity ?
    10. racer4four racer4four, 5 years ago
      I think this would be the perfect size for what it is Scott. Some things lose their appeal as they get big. Durer was a master, and whoever made this certainly did a great job.
    11. TassieDevil TassieDevil, 5 years ago
      This is fantastic Scott......I love it and I love that it is small....a great size!!!

      Thank goodness for CW where we are able to share our things with like minded collectors!!! My family don't understand or appreciate it either Scott!!!
    12. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Wandlessfairy,
      Thanks so very much!! Without any makers marks anywhere, it would be difficult to determine the age of this. I hope that someone will eventually be able to tell me the approximate age of this.
    13. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Karen,
      Thank you!! I totally concur on the size of this. Yes, Durer was certainly a master and this plaque is a very true likeness of the original painting. Thanks again!!

      Judy,
      Thank you so very much!! This really caught my eye when I saw it and I knew it belonged in my collection.
      In all the years I've collected top hats, trunks and doorstops, there were only a couple of friends that ever showed the slightest sign of interest in my collection. But, that doesn't matter because it's what I enjoy doing. I'm very grateful to all of my CW friends, such as you, for showing interest in my collection and for supporting all of my posts! Thanks again Judy!!

      Scott, fantastic! He had to be yours... I wonder if Dürer thought of you when painting his hare...
    16. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Thanks Thomas!!
      We have quite few cotton tails that roam our yard on a frequent basis.
    17. jscott0363 jscott0363, 5 years ago
      Thanks Kyra!!
      I sometimes feel like I once lived in the 14th century and he could have possibly had me in mind when he painted the "Young Hare":)

      Thomas,
      My good friend!! I miss you and everyone at CW. I'll be back by September sometime. Life's pretty busy these days, but should ease up by Autumn. Busiest year we've ever had. Hope all is well in Alabama.
