Virtual reconstruction of Will Grohmann’s art collection

Florian Schneider

After Annemarie Grohmann’s death in 1970, important parts of Will Grohmann’s private collection as well as his extensive archive went as a bequest to Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. Dresden’s Kupferstichkabinett also received a share, and a further part remained with close relatives, or was passed on to friends and relations. Since there was no complete list of the estate, an attempt was made to reconstruct the collection with the aid of clues from the archives (correspondence, catalogues, notes, etc.), from auction catalogues and other publications. The results of this research will be accessible through a special media application.
