Brush and Ink Portrait: Albrecht Dürer, "Man Aged 93," 1521.
Albrecht Durer - Praying Hands - the story behind the image - One day, long ago, to pay homage to Albert for all that he had sacrificed, Albrecht Durer painstakingly drew his brother’s abused hands with palms together and thin fingers stretched skyward. He called his powerful drawing simply “Hands,” but the entire world almost immediately opened their hearts to his great masterpiece and renamed his tribute of love “The Praying Hands.”
