Wenceslaus Hollar (Artist) Albrecht Dürer (After)

Portrait of a Young Woman with Her Hair Pinned Up

Portrait of a Young Woman with Her Hair Pinned Up by Wenceslaus Hollar, Albrecht Dürer

Artwork Detail Request a print

This reproductive print records a painting by the German

artist Albrecht Dürer that was once in the Arundel

Collection. The painting is dated 1497 and is now in the

Gemäldegalerie in Berlin.

Hollar dedicated this print to the Countess of Arundel

and it was made in the same year as his portrait of her

after Van Dyck. The two prints may have been part of a

charm offensive to encourage the countess to provide

support for Hollar’s artistic activities, a role previously

played by her husband.
