Watercolor. A small watercolor of Nuremberg Castle as seen from the north attracted international attention in 2007 as part of the major "Dürer e l'Italia" exhibition in Rome. It had been stored away for many years in an obscure corner of the city's collections until Dürer connoisseur Matthias Mende became its advocate and decided it came from the hand of the city's great master. The discovery was just in time for the "Albrecht Dürer – An Artist in His City" exhibition at the Fembohaus Municipal Museum for the city's anniversary year in 2000. The ascription was also accepted for the major Dürer exhibition in Vienna in 2003. The Rome curators, however, were a bit more cautious: they added "(attr.)," for "attributed," after the artist's name in the catalog.
