They came across the picture on the back of the main altar, and art historians say it’s a good idea painted by Albrecht Dürer.

Interests in the Lutheran church in Baden-Württemberg in Crailsheim overflowed after art historians suspected that a piece of the painting on the back of the main altar, but mostly hidden from visitors’ eyes, was painted by Albrecht Dürer, the greatest master of the German Renaissance.

At St John’s Church in Crailsheim, the altar with late Gothic wings, much of it scattered, was closed on Monday to allow a large number of visitors to view the altarpiece attributed to Dürer.

Experts say the winged altarpiece, built around 1490, comes from the workshop of Dürer’s master and painter and woodcarver Michael Walgemut, and one of the paintings depicting the executioner with the head of John the Baptist cut off is very similar to other works by Albrecht Dürer. , born 550 years old.

The church’s bishop, Frederick Wagner, said Monday that the winged altar will remain folded for two to three months until the influx of visitors subsides.

Dürer’s newly discovered painting will be examined in the near future by leading Dürer experts from the artist’s narrow home, Bavaria.

Born in Nuremberg, Dürer was the first German painter to reconcile his religious beliefs with the official language of the Italian Renaissance, to study perspective and the rules of beauty, while avoiding the idealism of Italian designs.
