Albrecht Dürer – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albrecht_Durer

During his journey to Zeeland, Drer contracted a malaria-like infection from which he would never recover. This is the context within which this small drawing, a self-portrait, was presumably created, for the artist is pointing to a painful spot.

The inscribed comment, “Do der gelb fleck ist und mit dem finger drawff do ist mir we” translates to:

“This is the yellow spot and when I press my finger on it, it hurts.”
