Harvard Art Museums are gifted German Drawings

Gift includes works by Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jörg Immendorff, Imi Knoebel and Sigmar Polke

Cambridge, October 1, 2020

 

The Harvard Art Museums have announced a gift from collector Dr. Dorette Hildebrand-Staab of nearly 50 works by German postwar artists including Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jörg Immendorf, Imi Knoebel, Sigmar Polke and Eugen Schönebeck. These artworks follow an earlier gift by Dr. Hildbrand-Staab that was donated in 2008 and included a 1964 painting by Baselitz called Saxon Motif.

 

Dr. Hildebrand-Staab, who often purchased works directly from artists, was quoted that the gift is offered as a "bridge between the United States and Germany, in gratitude for American support of the country after 1945, but also to remind new generations of this longstanding relationship."
