Richard Feigen participated in a ADAA panel on Old Master works this weekend. While on stage his conversation turned–as it often does–to whatever was on his mind. In this case, it was his discovery on Friday of a work in his personal collection that had been the product of a forced sale from german dealer Max Stern’s stock in 1937. Feigen told the audience that he was alerted to the possibility when he realized that he had bought works from the same German auction house as Philip Mould, the dealer who sold the recent Stern discover.
Feigen says it took several searches to determine whether his picture was on the list of the Stern estate.
