Northern Renaissance

One work of art in specific that I found to help summarize the Northern Renaissance and its association with Humanism was Albrecht Durer’s self portrait. It seemed like many artists of the time felt the necessity to create self-portraits as so many of them did. I believe Durer’s self portrait, as well as every other artist of the Northern Renaissance who created self portraits, followed the concept of humanism because they were embracing the human image, instead of creating visuals of angels and other spiritual and religious figures.
