This gift of 11 German Expressionist works, most notably including watercolours, prints and drawings by Lyonel Feininger, is a significant addition to New Walk Museum & Art Gallery’s holdings of early 20th-century German art.

The donor’s father, Stefan Pauson, was the brother-in-law of art collector Alfred Hess, whose collection formed the core of the New Walk Museum’s 1944 exhibition Mid-European Art and subsequently laid the foundation for the museum’s present collection.
