Long lost paint­ing by Dürer found in Vi­enna Cathe­dral shop

Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART ROUNDUP -

An un­known un­der­draw­ing by

Al­brecht Dürer, recog­nised as the great­est artist of the North­ern Re­nais­sance, has been found on a wall be­hind the cash desk of St Stephen’s Cathe­dral in Vi­enna. The paint­ing de­picts two fe­male saints and was drawn on fresh plas­ter and thought to date from about 1505. If the paint­ing is con­firmed to be by Dürer, then it means the artist paid an un­recorded visit to Vi­enna. It is not sure why the paint­ing was left un­fin­ished.
