Description

In 1992, Warrington Colescott undertook an imaginary trip to Germany to visit his artistic heroes. The first stop was to the atelier of Albrecht Dürer, arguably one of the most important figures in the history of the graphic arts, where the atmosphere of the studio is jolly and productive, and the apprentices all wear T-shirts emblazoned with Dürer's monogram.
