A women native of Essen bequeaths her house to the Folkwang-Museumsverein

The childless nurse resident of Essen, who died at the age of 82, bequeathed her home to the Folkwang-Museumsverein. The property is to be sold at the highest bid in favor of a new acquisition to the collection of the Museum Folkwang.

"This is a wonderful example of generosity and exceptional modesty. After all, she could have approached us during her lifetime."
Ulrich Blank, Chairman of the Folkwang-Museumsverein
