He died 4/06/1528, Nurnberg, Germany, leaving behind an oeuvre of nearly 100 paintings, about 250 woodcuts, 110 engravings, over 1000 drawings and three treatises on geometry and the theory of human proportion.

Source Notes

Fagan states that the horoscope for 10:25 AM LMT on May 30, 1471 NS in Nurnberg, Germany was calculated by Bishop Lucas Gauricus and included in his "Tractatus Astrologicus." (May 21 OS).

In December 2007 Sy Scholfield wrote by e-mail BORN: 21 May 1471 [OS], 30 May 1471 [NS], 11:00 am Nuremberg, Germany. Sy Scholfield quotes Durer's father's record, as transcribed in Mary M. Heaton's book, "The History of the Life of Albrecht Dürer of Nürnberg" (Adamant Media Corporation, 2000 [Mrs Charles Heaton, Macmillan, 1870]), p. 32: "But it is the third entry in this long registry of births that is alone of significance to us. This says that in "the year 1471 after Christ, on St. Prudentia's day, at the sixth hour [that is, according to our reckoning, at eleven o'clock A.M. on the 21st of May], on a Tuesday, my wife was delivered of a second son. His godfather was Antonius Koberger. He was called Albrecht after me."

On 8 April 2014, Scholfield cites same birth record quoted in "Albert Durer: His Life and Works. Including Autobiographical Papers and Complete Catalogues" by William Bell Scott (Longmans, Green, 1869), p. 17.
