We invite you to visit the portal dedicated to the collections gathered by art lovers of Warsaw between the mid 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. The aim of this project is to bring the figures of many art collectors closer, whose art acquisitions still remain unknown. Among them we shall mention Leon Franciszek Goldberg-Górski, Bronislaw Krystall, Edward Rejcher or Gustaw and Julia Wertheim.
We are pleased to invite you to the lecture series on artworks which were part of the collection gathered by a famous architect Eduard Schaubert (1804-1860). Many antiques did he gather within his long-term residence in Greece, where he was a court architect.
70 years have now passed since Edvard Munch's death, therefore his oeuvre has reached the public domain. In this way we are able to present photos of the painter's works which were formerly housed in private collections in Breslau.
Many among over 1400 artworks found in Cornelius Gurlitt, son of a merchant collaborating with Nazis Hildebrand Gurlitt's apartment in Munich, had formerly been parts of the Jewish collections.
