THANNHAUSER COLLECTION




ART:

Justin K. Thannhauser was the son of renowned art dealer Heinrich Thannhauser, who founded the Galerie Moderne in Munich in 1909. From an early age, Thannhauser worked with his father to build impressive exhibitions of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works as well as the art of the contemporary French and German avant-gardes. The Thannhausers’ commitment to promoting artistic progress paralleled the vision of Solomon R. Guggenheim. In recognition of this shared spirit, Justin Thannhauser bequested a significant portion of his art collection—including masterpieces by C├ęzanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir, and Van Gogh—to the Guggenheim Museum, where it is on view in a dedicated gallery.
