Description

Description

Europe in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries was home to great advances in exploration and science, especially in the realms of cartography and navigational instruments. Nuremberg, Germany, the birthplace of Albrecht Drer (1471 1528), was a particularly influential center for humanism, the arts, and commercial enterprises, as well as an important center for printmaking. It was in this artistic hub that Drer, a renowned painter, draftsman, writer, and printmaker, produced The Celestial Map-Northern Hemisphereand The Celestial Globe- Southern Hemisphere, both in 1515.

Based upon a map of the stars drawn by an anonymous artist in Nuremberg in 1503, Drer's maps in The Met collection are the first star charts to have been printed in Europe, further indicating Nuremberg's important role as a printing capital. This calendar will guide you as you navigate your course for the year ahead.
