LOTHAR-GÜNTHER BUCHHEIM AND THE ART MARKET

16.03. – 16.06.2024

Where do you start your research? This question is often asked by visitors when it comes to prov- enance research methods. The answer is rather complex: an important part of the research involves the acquisition sources that document where, when and occasionally by whom an object was sold or purchased. They provide starting points for researching the identity of previous owners and the circumstances of acquisition, which in turn enable the identification of Nazi-looted art.

In our studio exhibition »Lothar-Günther Buchheim and the art market«, we present to you the col- lector and dealer Lothar-Günther Buchheim (1918–2007) as an important player in the art market. A selection of works on paper from the ongoing provenance research project »Drawings & Watercolors by ›Brücke‹ Artists« will be placed in relation to their places of acquisition – mostly auction houses.

At the start of the project, and without an inven- tory book of the Buchheim Collection, this infor- mation was still unknown. With the help of the auction catalogues preserved in the Buchheim couple's private library and the handwritten notes therein, known as »annotations«, as well as a few invoice documents, initial provenance chains could be reconstructed. These were further expanded thanks to the collegial support of the archives of the respective auction houses. We look forward to using this exhibition to bring you closer to our work on provenance research at the Buchheim Museum.
