Arm of Eve
The technique of an ink drawing on blue paper with white highlights was quite common during the Renaissance as studies for paintings. Duerer was a master printmaker who used meticulous cross hatched lines to build up form. Such a technique is evident in this lovely, delicate study with very refined cross hatched white lines to add highlights to the arm.
