New Postwar German Works at the Harvard Art Museums
Nearly 50 works by major figures in postwar German art have been given as a gift to our partner institution, The Harvard Art Museums, from the collector Dorette Hildebrand-Staab. The works include drawings by such notable artists as Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Antonius Höckelmann, Jörg Immendorff, Imi Knoebel, Sigmar Polke, and Eugen Schönebeck. Born largely during World War II, and coming of age in the 1960s, the artists were among the first to deal directly with their country’s fascist past.
