We welcome back a much-loved figure who has been absent for too long: Albrecht Dürer’s Young Hare. As part of its Dürer retrospective, the Albertina is letting the world’s most famous hare out of its “hutch” for a few months. The Albertina has the most significant collection of the master’s drawings in the world with over 140 pieces. Add other major works on international loan, and the exhibition comprises more than 100 drawings, around a dozen paintings, personal records and other rarely seen documents.
