About the Acquisition

Hanna Bekker vom Rath (1893-1983) came from an old Frankfurt family and was an active and committed patron of artists and the arts. With her husband, Paul, she purchased a house in Hofheim in 1920 ('Blue House'), which developed into a meeting place for modernist artists. During the Nazi era in particular, artists were able to find peace and strength here. After the Second World War, Bekker vom Rath took over the direction of the Frankfurt Kunstkabinett. Her heirs donated this sculpture in 1988 in memory of her passionate patronage of art.
