CONCORD, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The last time an unknown work of German artist Albrecht Dürer was discovered was 1932, but a family in Concord has found another at a local estate sale.

Dr.Christof Metzger, chief curator at the Albertina Museum in Vienna and expert on Dürer's Renaissance work, said the uncovered drawing "The Virgin and Child with a Flower on a grassy Bench" was an authentic piece after inspecting it himself.

"I'm 100% sure that this drawing is done by Albrecht Dürer, without any doubt," said Metzger, "This has been the very first occasion where I did not answer 'it's a copy, it's a fake.'"

The drawing was purchased by a Concord resident for $30, but the piece could be worth up to tens of millions of dollars.
