Dürer lovers and soccer fans…who knew?

When Albrecht Dürer painted Self-portrait (1500), he probably never envisioned a stadium full of soccer fans joining a public – and heated – debate over its display. Then again, maybe the 28-year-old artist didn’t know he would become an icon for his state of Franconia (now part of Bavaria). “Dürer back to his city!” read a large banner held up by attendees at a local match in Nuremberg, an unlikely venue for such a statement, to say the least.
