The Detroit Institute of Arts is proud to own one of the strongest holdings of German Expressionist Art in America. The bulk of this collection (Paintings, Sculpture, Drawings and Prints) was acquired during the tenure of Director William Valentiner in the 1920-40s. Through his purchases the DIA became a pioneering US institution in collecting artwork from this very important period of German art.
