Presented in this exhibition is the exceptional collection of a woman whose career following the Second World War started as a simple secretary and led to becoming the right hand woman of the renowned art dealer Wilhelm Grosshennig in Dusseldorf, and a passionate art collector after 1960. The selection includes around 90 works with a focus on German Expressionism. In addition to outstanding work groups from Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Emil Nolde, works from a considerable ensemble of German art from the 19 th century and Western European greats like Picasso, Matisse and Modigliani will also be shown.
