One last look


The announcement on Thursday that an agreement has been reached with the Wassmann Foundation that will see the works of Johann Dieter Wassmann repatriated to Germany has been met with overwhelming joy here in Leipzig (see official statement below). Before the works leave the United States, however, here's one last look at these beloved pieces in situ, as they have appeared for the last quarter century at the Wassmann Foundation's Washington, D.C. headquarters. Our tour is graciously led by Kaufmann Director Jeffrey D. Wassmann.

Sophie Vogt/Jeffrey Wassmann, or whoever you are, would you please write me at lizvogt@bellsouth.net? :))

I am Jeffrey's cousin on the Wassmann side and would like to correspond. Your website was quite convincing till I came across the name Mamie Stombock, who was my great-uncle George's wife and from Luray VA. In the name of good fun, I'd like to be in touch, and also have a number of questions for Jeffrey regarding the Wassmanns.

Thanks,

Elizabeth Vogt
