“Works of art go wayfaring. That has always been their destiny and will never change.”
Almost a century ago in 1926, the Berlin art critic Adolph Donath (1876 – 1937) began his description of provenance research with this profound observation.

Just how kaleidoscopic these stories can be is illustrated by the exhibition “Provenances. Wayfaring Art”, taking as an example a self-portrait of Max Liebermann (1847 – 1935) painted in 1912. In a hanging that recreates a salon setting, the show features works from the Berlinische Galerie collection which have rarely, if ever, been displayed in the past.
