“The German artist, Albrecht Dürer, who hailed from Nuremberg, painted his now famous ‘Young Hare’ in 1502; it is widely acknowledged as a masterpiece of observational art and is housed in the Albertina Museum in Vienna. The pink sculpture is a giant interpretation of that famous painting. It was created by Ottmar Hörl, the president of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg since 2005. In 2003, he created a large scale art installation of numerous hares in four shades of green, which were displayed in Nuremberg market square under the title ‘A large piece of hare’.” (Pink Rabbit!, Travel with Intent)
