Description:
This exhibition presents the extraordinary story of Dr. Richard Neumann (1879-1959) a discerning Austrian-Jewish collector who was committed to promoting the important role of the arts in civic life. Through a presentation of 13 Old Master paintings and sculptures from Neumann's once extensive art collection, we will follow his escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna and Paris during World War II, his passion for art, and the family's 50-year effort to reassemble the collection alongside restitution advocates, provenance researchers, and museum allies.

"What the Nazis Stole from Richard Neumann (and the search to get it back)" is sponsored by Fallon Health. Additional support has been provided by the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts, The Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University, the PEACE Fund, Marlene and David Persky, Carol and Michael Sleeper, Dr. Shirley S. Siff, Johanna D. Drooz Yoffie and Alan S. Yoffie, Carol Seager and anonymous donors.
