Confiscated by the Nazis as "degenerate art" - Corinth masterpiece returns home

The painting originally entered the Düsseldorf museum’s collection in 1925. It was confiscated by the Nazi regime as „degenerate art“ in 1937 and subsequently sold at the infamous auction at Fischer, Lucerne in 1939. There it was acquired by Emil G. Bührle. At this sale Germany lost 125 priceless masterpieces of Modern Art purged from German museums by the Nazis. Most of these wonderful works are currently dispersed around the world. Thus I am very happy that I was able to acquire the Corinth still life from the Bührle collection and help return it to Düsseldorf.

After 85 years Lovis Corinth's masterpiece has returned home to the Düsseldorf museum for good!
