The Eckhardt-Gramatté Foundation.
The WAG acquires almost 200 works of art from the Eckhardt-Gramatté Foundation. To hear John Bulman, President of the WAG Board (1971-1974) and Chair of the Eckhardt-Gramatté Foundation, discuss the beginnings of the Foundation and its mission, click the link below.
The Eckhardt-Gramatté Foundation is a charitable organization established in 1982 by former WAG Director, the late Dr. Ferdinand Eckhardt (1902–1995), to honour his wife, composer and musician Sophie “Sonia” Carmen Eckhardt-Gramatté (1899–1974) and her first husband Walter Gramatté (1897-1929). The donation’s greatest strength lies in its representation artworks (paintings, watercolours, drawings, and prints) by German Expressionist artists, including Gramatté, George Grosz (1893–1959), Erich Heckel (1883–1970), Käthe Kollwitz (1867–1945), Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980), and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff (1884–1976).]
