A presentation in honour of the recently deceased collector, publisher and patron of the arts.

Growing antisemitism caused the Hanseatic Altmann family to move to France in 1929, finally gaining them Liechtenstein nationality after a prolonged search for security. But emigration became necessary once again and took Robert Altmann first to Geneva, Madrid and New York, and, finally, in 1941, to Havana. Coming from a culturally disposed family of bankers, he had been interested in art since his early years. He became a collector, patron and publisher and also engaged in his own artistic work. In 1947 he published a first portfolio of lithographs and etchings of Joan Miró, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy and Roberto Matta, among others. Altogether he created seven of these Brunidor Portfolios by 1973, followed by book editions with equally renowned collaborators.

In honour of the recently deceased Robert Altmann, the show in the Seitenlichtsaal presents five Brunidor Portfolios and his loans and donations to Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

Admission to the presentation is free of charge!
