By Stefanie Marx

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Kunst - Grafik, Druck, notice: 1-2, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Kunsthistorisches Institut), Veranstaltung: Proseminar: Das druckgraphische Werk Albrecht Dürers, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Melencolia I“ gehört neben „Der große Reiter“ und „Hieronymus im Gehäus“ zu den drei Meisterstichen Albrecht Dürers, die allesamt in den Jahren 1513 und 1514 entstanden sind.
Kein anderes Werk hat in der kunsthistorischen Forschung so viele Anschauungen, Deutungen und kontroverse Interpretationen erfahren, wie dieser Kupferstich.
Dürer gelang es, 1514 ein Meisterwerk zu schaffen, dessen einzelne Bildelemente sondiert zwar interpretierbar sind, das sich jedoch einer zusammenhängenden, vollendeten Bildinterpretation entzieht.
Unzählige Kunsthistoriker versuchten dieses Werk Dürers zu analysieren, doch keiner von ihnen kam zu einer vollständigen und eindeutigen ikonologischen Analyse.

Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, eine Darstellung der Temperamentenlehre bis zur Zeit Dürers zu liefern, insbesondere die Entwicklung des Melancholikers.
Des Weiteren werde ich eine Interpretation der einzelnen Bildelemente, beziehungsweise des ganzen Stiches vornehmen, die sich auf dieses Temperament bezieht.
