Albert and the Whale

9 h 13 min
An illuminating exploration of the intersection between life, art and the sea from the award-winning author of.Leviathan

‘This is a wonderful book. A lyrical journey into the natural and unnatural world 
 Leading us from the hands of an engraver to the monstrous beauty dwelling in the churning seas’ Patti Smith

Albrecht DĂŒrer changed the way we saw nature through art. From his prints in 1498 of the plague ridden Apocalypse – the first works mass produced by any artist – to his hyper-real images of animals and plants, his art was a revelation: it showed us who we are but it also foresaw our future. It is a vision that remains startlingly powerful and seductive, even now.

In , Philip Hoare sets out to discover why DĂŒrer's art endures. He encounters medieval alchemists and modernist poets, eccentric emperors and queer soul rebels, ambassadorial whales and enigmatic pop artists. He witnesses the miraculous birth of DĂŒrer's fantastical rhinoceros and his hermaphroditic hare, and he traces the fate of the star-crossed leviathan that the artist pursued. And as the author swims from Europe to America and beyond, these prophetic artists and downed angels provoke awkward questions. What is natural or unnatural? Is art a fatal contract? Or does it in fact have the power to save us? With its wild and watery adventures, its witty accounts of amazing cultural lives and its delight in the fragile beauty of the natural world, offers glorious, inspiring insights into a great artist, and his unerring, sometimes disturbing gaze.Albert & the WhaleAlbert & the Whale
