Albrecht Durer

Just watching a programme on BBC 4 at the moment, about the original Albrecht Durer… what a fascinating character he was! Good choice of user name, Sir…

Oh, it’s gone onto other German artists now.

i think i saw it some weeks ago.

cool man!

Nice rhino.


Guten Tag.

Güten tag Herr Dürer.

Perhaps the Beeb will get around to doing Hieronymus Fracastorius, a contemporary.

Perhaps they will… it would appear that we’ve both been rumbled as to the inspiration for our user names! (I think I was in the final stages of my History degree when I joined up here…)

I’m fortunate to live in Vienna and the art museum have a number of Bosch’s works they are really

fascinating to see.

Some of his paintings look like what it feels like to have MS!

If you don’t know what I mean, look up The "Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch.

Blimey Mr D

I followed your advice and Googled the painting above. How heavy is that? HB must have been on some serious cheese. Thanks for this it was sufficiently challenging to break my internal Egg imageworm.


It’s enough to put one off omelettes for life.
