Description
English: Saint Anthony the Great, (St. Anthony of Egypt, of the Desert, etc.), is regarded as the first Christian hermit. He was a favorite subject for artists. In this engraving, Dürer has juxtaposed the Saint with his cross and bible with the urban world he left behind him. Formally, the design of the monk echoes that of the city, suggesting that the hermit is a world unto himself. The cityscape itself is modeled on an earlier work by Dürer, the drawing Pupila Augusta. It is also seen in the background of his 1506 Feast of the Rose Garlands.
