Book Knowing their trado Just a bit better than the next fellow has en ­ abled a group of German art ex ­ perts to save for Germany a newly discovered Holbein which might otherwise have gone to the United States. Some months ago s pointing was offered for sale at a London auc ­ tion. It was listed as the work qf an unknown German master. One of those who attended the auction was Lulu Boehler, connoisseur and dealer of Munich. She was not misled by tho low bidding for the painting, but Instead recognlxed Us ,/orth and through clev-r bidding fa her own part succeeded In buy- ig It. Placing the, find In the -ifhler galleries of Munich, she iclted an examination by other ’ :norts who confirmed her opinion ist the work was that of Hans ■ lolbeln the Younger. Thereupon, largely ^through the Intervention of Drr E.\ H. Zlmmer- r-.ann, director of the Germania Museum of NurnMerg and a nephew if Wilhelm Bode, the famous Gen ­ ian art critic who died recently. 3e Holbein was given a permanent - lace In, the Germania Museum. 7ie^Bo«iler galleries could easily ’ \ ’ filCeisold It to American clients at a record price. In the belief of those well acquainted with the practice# of American agents who are con- .'.antly combing Germany for new works of art; Instead the manage ­ ment agreed to sell the piece to tho ; .'urnberg museum at a much lower figure. Even this figw# was high, but the painting 'wds Nevertheless <aved when a number of connois ­ seurs and other art-minded cltlxcna set up a fund for Its purchase. It was stipulated as a condition of the purchase that the Germania Mu ­ seum should never sell the painting. The Holbein work la known as ‘ The Portrait of Johannes Xllotec- tua.\ It was done tn the year 1520 when Holbein was. living In Basle, and It Is the earliest of his works to contain tho \figure of death.\ which ptky* such a prominent part In all his later paintings.
