About the Acquisition

The historian and town librarian Johann Friedrich Böhmer (1795-1863) was the administrator of the Städel from 1822 until 1834. He bequeathed to the museum works by his contemporaries, including Ferdinand Olivier and Johann Anton Ramboux, together with two old Italian paintings. A year later a further twenty-three Sienese paintings came into the possession of the Städel, having initially been donated to the Verein für Geschichte und Alterthumskunde (Society for History and the Study of Antiquity). Since the society had no use for them, they were exchanged for a pair of old pistols.
