The life of Herbert Bier through his archive

The life of Herbert Bier through his archive

The Wallace Collection is taking part in the Insiders Outsiders festival, a year long nationwide project celebrating refugees from Nazi Europe and their contribution to British culture. This will be a chance to view the archive material and hear a talk on the life of the art dealer Herbert Bier (1905–1981). Bier had clients from all over the world and dealt with top museums in Britain, America and Australia. His interests and expertise were wide-ranging and thousands of works of art went through his hands during his lifetime. He was a meticulous record keeper and his archive is not only useful for provenance research of paintings but shows the discrimination he faced in Germany as well as life in London after he emigrated in 1936.
