This image of an imposing estate in Nuremberg, Germany, appears at the end of a series of Derrer family portraits in their illustrated genealogy. The massive residence is composed of large, square blocks of stone, known as ashlar masonry. This visual record of one of the Derrers' impressive houses was an effective way of preserving the family's reputation long after the death of its members and the later remodeling of their buildings.
