Doubts About the Doebekke Collection: From Corinth to Kirchner
Since the formulation of the Washington Principles on Nazi-Confiscated Art in 1998, the field of provenance research with regard to museum collections has developed markedly. This exhibition offers insight into the off-stage detective work into the journeys of paintings in the museum’s collection, focusing in particular on the Berlin estate agent and collector Conrad Doebekke (1889–1954), from whom more than 100 works were acquired by the city of Hanover in 1949. Find out more from the Sprengel Museum’s website.
