Heinz Braune

Heinz Braune (1880 - 1957)

Having graduated studies on history of art in Lausanne, Lepizig and Munich Braune enjoyed a career in the museums of Munich which culminated in his nomination for the position of the Director of State Painting Collections in 1914. 5 years later he was appointed the director of the Silesian Museum of Fine Arts in Breslau.
