will reign over the city until the end of June,

"The large-scale presentation unites the highlights of the collection, from Michelangelo through Rembrandt and Rubens to Caspar David Friedrich. The centrepiece of the Albertina, Dürer's famous "Young Hare", is now once again accessible to an interested public in the context of this exhibit after a decade-long period of grace"
