Ahem, as far as I know, not only the Dürers but ALL works in the "highlights from the collection"-display are high-quality facsimiles (mostly, of course, for preservation reasons - no curator in his/her right mind will allow centuries-old drawings and watercolours to be permanently hung in a brightly lit room). Unfortunately, the Albertina doesn't seem to make much of an effort to make this fact apparent to its visitors but hides this bit of information somewhere in the small print. And I have to say, I'm 100% sure what I feel about that!

The "Monet to Picasso" and the Maximilian I exhibitions, though, consist of originals - as one would expect from a world-renowned museum...

Thanks for the clarification. The fact that the museum did not make this clear is the key point, rather than that the items were facsimiles.

If I remember correctly, there's a sign saying they're all facsimiles *somewhere*, but it's placed in such an inconspicuous way to make it seem as if they don't visitors to see it ;-)
