Dürer's Limbs

Freedberg, David A.

In 1512, at the height of his career, Dürer wrote that "if you wish to make a good figure, you must take the head from some, breast, arms, legs, hands and feet from others ... for, just as honey is gathered from many flowers, so from many beautiful things one gathers something good".
