MISSING: Der Turm der blauen Pferde by Franz Marc
Contemporary artists in search of a lost masterpiece
Rumor has had it for decades that “Der Turm der blauen Pferde” (1913) by Franz Marc was last seen at Haus am Waldsee in Berlin after World War Two. Its whereabouts remain a subject of speculation. Only a coloured study in form of a postcard has survived and is now part of the collection of the Graphische Sammlung in Munich.
Twenty contemporary artists are searching in Berlin and Munich for the lost masterpiece, that was part of the collection of the Neue Abteilung in the Nationalgalerie Berlin until 1936 and has been missing since then until today.
