From renaissance onwards a new mentality arises in the field of observation. Drawings become more realistic, perspective and mathematics gain in importance. Albrecht Dürer is considered one of the first landscape artists. His series of observations, true to nature with the sharpest details, were never intended as artwork but rather as mere studies of nature. Self-conscious as Dürer was, taking into account his large collection of self portraits, he signed all of his works with his remarkable signature.
