NameOskar Kokoschka - Willy Hahn's private collection A Gift to the Kupferstich-Kabinett
Description

Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden (SKD) has received a unique gift: 80 sketches and watercolours from Willy Hahn's private collection entered the Kupferstich-Kabinett's collection. The gift is thanks to the son of the collector Willy Hahn: Peter Hahn, the former director of the Berlin Bauhaus-Archiv. He has until now owned this collection, a significant one in terms of art history.

The gift makes an excellent addition to the Dresden collection of 11 drawings, 94 prints and four folders. Oskar Kokoschka has a special connection to Dresden's Kupferstich-Kabinett. In 1919 he became a professor at the local art academy, where he worked until 1923. Soon the Kupferstich-Kabinett was keen to acquire the artist's works. In fact, Kokoschka gave some works to the museum as a gift, though these were seized during the “Degenerate Art” campaign.
