„Der frühe Dürer“

Juli 27, 2012

Gestern habe ich mir einen Tag Urlaub genommen und mir gemeinsam mit Thony in Nürnberg am Germanischen Nationalmuseum die Ausstellung „Der frühe Dürer“ angesehen. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Warum erwähne ich Dürer in einem mathematischen Blog? Als Antwort zitiere ich einfach Thony aus seinem Blogbeitrag A maths book from a painter:

Several years ago the City of Nürnberg decided to relaunch itself on the world market as “Dürer City”. The local newspaper conducted a survey and asked the people on the street if they knew who Albrecht Dürer was. … I was not asked but if I had been I would have answered, “an important German Renaissance mathematician”, which would almost certainly have convinced the questioner that I was one of the clueless!
