Another favorite subject of Durer was his friend and confidant Willibald Pirckheimer, whom he depicted in several paintings and engravings. Pirckheimer, a renowned lawyer and scholar, strikes us the very opposite of Durer. Durer images present a man with a powerful physique as well as a soulful, spiritual quality. But Pirckheimer seems to be very carnal, a man who is somehow debauched and certainly not in prime physical shape. The contrast between the two men's appearance is very interesting, yet despite their differences they were lifelong friends.
