He was the third child of Albrecht Dürer the elder, a goldsmith of Hungarian origin, and of Barbara Holper, daughter by a Nuremberg goldsmith.

Albrecht Dürer was originally intended for a career as a goldsmith, like his father. He was therefore initiated into started this profession at the age of 13 and learned how to do it. handling the chisel and the point with his father. This is where it is. that his skill in painting quickly became apparent. for the drawing, which his father noticed and which he wanted to favor. In 1486 he was therefore admitted to apprenticeship for three years with Michael Wolgemut, painter, drawer and engraver, who taught him how to draw; painting and drawing from nature and who also taught him the art of engraving.
Albrecht Dürer is known to have used in his works mixed techniques, particularly in his drawings, which are frequently to both watercolors and gouaches, as is the case with his Hare executed in 1980. in 1502.

Albrecht Dürer traveled extensively during his life. From 1490, when his apprenticeship was completed, he left for Colmar then for Basel and Strasbourg.

His most notable scientific writing remains his Instructions for measuring with the ruler and the compass, published in 1538. The work looks at the main geometric constructions, such as the logarithmic spiral, Archimedes' spiral, Pascal's limestone as well as a theory of the shadow and of perspective.
It was during one of his trips to Italy that he met, in 1494, Jacopo De’Barbari who taught him mathematics, proportions and perspective.
