Ernst Barlach, Marc Chagall, Max Beckmann, Emil Nolde, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Otto Dix, Wassily Kandinsky and Oskar Schlemmer – many of their famous paintings and sculptures have been lost, leaving behind painful gaps in the collections of German museums. For example, where is Franz Marc’s well-known painting “Turm der blauen Pferde” (The Tower of Blue Horses) from 1913, which hung in the National Gallery in Berlin until its confiscation in 1937 – even today, nobody knows!
