On the occasion of his 80th birthday, the Wiesbaden collector and patron of the arts Frank Brabant made a significant endowment: His extensive art collection, consisting chiefly of Classical Modernist works of Expressionist and New Objectivist art and encompassing some 600 works, will one day be bequeathed to the Staatliche Museum in Schwerin, the city of his birth in 1938, and Museum Wiesbaden in the city where he has resided for almost 60 years.
The exhibition From Beckmann to Jawlensky includes not only major works by renowned artists but presents a broad spectrum of art from the first half of the 20th century and clearly demonstrates the seamless fit of Brabant's collection into the collection of Classical Modernism at Musuem Wiesbaden.
The exhibition includes works from Heinrich Campendonk, Otto Dix, Lyonel Feininger, Conrad Felixmüller, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Hanna Höch, Karl Hofer, Wassily Kandinsky, Alexander Kanoldt, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Käthe Kollwitz, August und Helmuth Macke, Jeanne Mammen, Franz Marc, Ludwig Meidner, Otto Mueller, Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein and Otto Ritschl.
