Summary/Abstract: The influence of Dürer and of German art in general on the xylographers from Blaj from the second half of the 18th century is considerable. The Transylvanian artists took over various structure patterns and details. They became more careful when working with perspective and volume, with light and shadow. The characters depicted became more graceful and their attitudes and gestures were more convincing. All in all, the engravers from Blaj managed to create more realistic illustrations. Moreover, according to Virgil Vătăşianu, Gabriel Ştrempel, Adina Nanu, Viorica Guy Marica and others, the influence of German engravings, especially Dürer’s, endured in Romania from the 15th century until the 19th century.
