Notes and research we would like to share with you
Galerie von Garvens, Hannover – The Gallery of a Collector
Herbert von Garvens was not a gallerist, he was not an art dealer, he was not a museum director, and he was not the director of a non-profit space. He was an important collector who wanted to share his enthusiasm and discoveries with the public, at a time, in which new art, the avant-garde was much less accepted than we may be aware of today, 100 years later.

Influential Contemporary Art Exhibitions in the 20th and 21st Century
