Carl Sachs transferred his collection to the Kunsthaus Zürich in a number of stages during 1933 and 1934. In summer 1933, an impromptu exhibition entitled ‘French Painting of the 19th Century’ was staged here at short notice, with the clear aim of facilitating the unobtrusive evacuation of collections belonging to German Jews. Like the estate of the ‘degenerate’ Lovis Corinth, some of these works remained in the Kunsthaus stores and were shipped overseas during the late 1930s. They included Carl Sachs’s collection, which was sent away in 1939 (wohin?). Sachs also took the opportunity to sell the early painting by Claude Monet entitled ‘Portrait de Victor Jacquemont au parasol’ (1865/67) to the Kunsthaus for a considerable sum.
Accordingly, the potential beneficiaries have never sought to question the legality of the Kunsthaus’s ownership of this painting.
