Although engravings preoccupied his thoughts, Durer also continued to create bodycolor and watercolors such as Great Piece of Turf and Young Hare. Woodcuts of the Life of the Virgin and Great Passion were also created to showcase developments in Durer's modeling and style.

His later life was largely based on religious themes for great projects such as Sacra Conversazione and Crucifixion and he also began writing about perspective, fortification, proportions and geometry.

These prints soon made him famous across Europe. Iconography as a way of analyzing pictorial meaning, like the art itself, trusts basically to texts as a basis for all meaning. Drawings on human proportion were next on his agenda and works created at this time include the engraving Adam and Eve.

He made his four best paintings, Adam and EveVirgin with the Iristhe altarpiece the Assumption of the Virginand the Adoration of the Trinity by all the Saints In its ordering of the world and in its possession of meaning, such an art, like the analysis art historians have devoted to it, asserts that the power of art over life is real.
