A woodcut by the German Renaissance master, Albrecht Durer, has been discovered at the Museum Kunsthaus Kleve. The 500-year-old work was spotted by two students who were inspecting and cataloguing the German museum’s Wörner collection, which includes approximately 5,000 artworks donated to the institution by local architects, Gustav and Rose Wörner. The discovery came less than a month after a Durer engraving was found at a French flea market.
