Discovering the lost art of Angelika Hoerle (Video)

June 4th, 2009

It’s not everyday that important works of art are discovered in a garden shed! Toronto curator Angelika Littlefield describes an amazing adventure – how she uncovered the lost art of her great aunt Angelika Hoerle and Hoerle’s brother in Cologne Germany and how the collection made its way to the AGO. Hoerle died tragically at the age of 23 yet left an important legacy of drawings and documents from between the two world wars. (Interview 1988)
