A long-lost engraving by the Renaissance master, Albrecht Durer, has been discovered at a French flea market. The work, which dates back 500 years, was snapped up by a retired archaeologist and art collector for a fraction of its value. When he noticed a stamp from the Staatsgalerie museum in Stuttgart, Germany, on the back of the work, he decided to return the engraving. The work has been missing from the institution since the end of World War II.
