Albrecht Altdorfer (c. 1480-1538) was an German painter and printmaker, active in Regensburg, Bavaria.
Altdorfer's work, influenced by the linear, classical style of the Italian Renaissance, often depicts dramatic landscapes that are out of scale with the figures in the paintings.
His use of light creates tension and effects of movement. Many of his works are of religious subjects.
With Durer and Cranach, Altdorfer is regarded as one of the leaders of the German Renaissance.
Saint George and the Dragon 1510 (Alte Pinakothek, Munich) is an example of his landscape style; The Battle of Issus 1529 (also Munich) is a dramatic panorama.
