The Kunstmuseum Basel has reached an agreement with the heirs of Curt Glaser, a Berlin art dealer of Jewish heritage whose collection was auctioned off in Switzerland in 1933, when the museum acquired 200 of his drawings and prints.  Glaser had emigrated to Switzerland after being stripped of his position as director of the Berlin Art Library by the Nazis. Recognising that Glaser was a victim of Nazism, while also acknowledging that the auction was not forced and that Glaser would have retained the profits, the agreement between the Kunstmuseum and Glaser’s heirs stipulates that the museum will retain the artworks in its collection, but will put on an extensive exhibition about Curt Glaser and will provide financial compensation to the family.
