Provenance Research on the Berlin Art Collections of David Leder and Richard Semmel

 

 

Since 2002, Facts & Files has been conducting research on the art collections of the factory owner Richard Semmel and the businessman David Leder. Because they were Jews, both men suffered Nazi persecution and consequently lost their collections.

 

Facts & Files researched the creation of the art collections, the provenance of the paintings and drawings and also their whereabouts. Richard Semmel primarily collected paintings of the Dutch Masters, whereas David Leder was interested in modern art. Leder was a friend of the artist Max Liebermann and, together with his wife Lola, was the owner and the subject of several paintings and sketches by this well- known painter.
