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) in the Visitors’ Library at the Wallace Collection. 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 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.
