Con esta exposición íntima de gabinete,  Albertina rinde homenaje a la donación de treinta obras maestras del  dibujos de la colección del abogado Dr. Arthur Feldmann (1877-1941). Estas obras de artistas italianos, alemanes, franceses, y holandeses fueron generosamente presentados a la Albertina por el nieto del coleccionista, Uri Peled-Feldmann, entre los años 2011 y 2015.

La colección, que consta de unos 800 dibujos de artistas como Durero, Rembrandt y Poussin, es la colección privada compilada por Arthur Feldmann desde la década de 1920. Cuando los nacionalsocialistas ocuparon Checoslovaquia en 1939, se apoderaron de la villa y del arte la colección de Feldmann, cuya esposa, Gisela, fue asesinada en el campo de concentración de Auschwitz en 1944.

Después de su confiscación, esta colección de dibujos se dispersó. Con los años, la familia logró redescubrir las obras individuales a través de una meticulosa investigación, tomando posesión de ellas a través de la restitución.

Esta exposición y una publicación realizada en colaboración con el Departamento de Arte y Restitución de la Cancillería Federal se constituyen como expresión de la profunda gratitud por la donación, dando lugar al conocimiento público de la importancia del papel de Arthur Feldmann y de su colección.

With this intimate cabinet exhibition, the Albertina honours the outstanding donation of thirty master drawings from the collection of the lawyer Dr Arthur Feldmann (1877–1941). These works by Italian, German, French, and Dutch artists were generously presented to the Albertina by the collector’s grandson, Uri Peled-Feldmann, between 2011 and 2015.

Comprising some 800 drawings by such artists as Dürer, Rembrandt, and Poussin, the private collection compiled by Arthur Feldmann from the 1920s onwards was then one of the most prominent ones of its kind. Once the National Socialists had occupied Czechoslovakia in 1939, they seized Feldmann’s villa and art collection. Feldmann survived the humiliations he was forced to suffer only for a short period of time, and his wife, Gisela, was murdered at the concentration camp of Auschwitz in 1944. Following its confiscation, this prominent drawing collection was dissolved and scattered. Over the years, the family succeeded in rediscovering the individual works through meticulous research and take repossession of them through restitution.

This exhibition and a publication released in cooperation with the Federal Chancellery’s Art Restitution Department are meant as an expression of a deep gratitude for the donation and were realised out of the moral obligation to direct the general public’s attention to the important role of Arthur Feldmann and his collection.
