I was very happy with all that I purchased and have no hesitation about ordering again from you. I also liked the way your site was presented the things that I needed were easy to fine. I also might mention that I received my order without any damage and it was packed so well. I also received my order a day earlier then you thought.

Albrecht Altdorfer

Albrecht Altdorfer

(c.1480 - 1538)
Born: Regensburg, Germany
Style: Northern Renaissance
Famous Works:
  • Landscape with a Footbridge (1518-20)
  • Christ Taking Leave of his Mother (c. 1520)
  • Battle of Alexander at Issus (1529)
The paintings of Albrecht Altdorfer were among the first works of the period to provide such a marked emphasis on landscape. Altdorfer's passion for landscapes and small details came about in 1511 when he ventured on the Danube across the Austrian Alps. He became a main representative of the Danube style, and was instrumental in the development of what is known as pure landscape, in which the landscape accounts for the entire focus of the painting. There is evidence that the tradition of landscape painting goes back thousands of years, but by Altdorfer's time, the tradition had been long lost. For Altdorfer, Nature was of the utmost concern, even though it had ordinarily been considered a background element. The landscapes in Altdorfer's canvases are depicted in great detail and bold color, the artist often using the rising or setting sun to justify the liberal use of expressive color. Beyond painting, much of the artist's work included drawings, sketches and engravings. These works also reflect a view of the world in which trees, rivers and mountains are of paramount importance.

Best pencils ever made, EVER!
- Carrie G in Baton Rouge, LA
I like the White Galaxy Marker very much for writing on dark paper, and I have used it to cover another color when I needed to disguise a mistake or simply change effect. For example, I bought an ornament with name SCARLETT spelled on it and by covering the last 't', I was able to give this to someone with a cat named SCARLET. If color to be covered is a paint or other pen color, that can make the other color "stain" the white marker tip. This can be avoided if one is sure first color is dry before trying to cover it with white.
