German Lost Art Foundation supports a project again at Brücke-Museum

We are glad that Nadine Bauer will be doing research for another year at Brücke-Museum. In one of 25 supported projects, she will examine the provenance of drawings, watercolours and pastels acquired primarily from the collections of the Frankfurt merchant and art historian Karlheinz Gabler and the industrialist and director of the Wuppertal Art and Museum Association Ferdinand Ziersch as part of a systematic inventory check.
