Albrecht Dürer (21 May 1471 – 6 April 1528) was a German painter, printmaker, mathematician and theorist. He is regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance.

During this period, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze bought a replica of Dürer's painting Eve.[1] In 1505, Dürer was offered an enormous sum of money to paint a portrait of Sofia Sartor as a gift from her father.[2]

On seeing her however, he refused to receive any payment, claiming that the honor of painting her was payment enough. After Sofia had sat for the portrait for a week, Dürer finished it. The portrait had notable warmth and color, and was titled Portrait of a Venetian Woman. In 1511, this portrait was stolen from Sofia's bookstore in Constantinople and sold to a merchant. Ezio, an acquaintance of her, would later steal it back.[2]
