Dear alumni, dear friends,

A museum that deliberately exhibits a fake Monet? The Wallraff museum in Cologne is showing an unusual look behind the scenes in its "In the Museum's Laboratory" section, where the painting "On the banks of the Seine near Port Villez", which was first identified as a forgery by Wallraf art technicians, is on display. This exciting type of work is what this collection presentation is all about: We will get a clear explanation of what happens behind the doors of the "Department of Art Technology and Restoration". In addition to the forged Monet, we will learn about painting in the Middle Ages, van Gogh's painting tricks and methods of restoration. Furthermore, fascinating X-ray images and infrared images of a medieval altarpiece are on display.

We cordially invite you to join us for an exclusive guided tour in English “In the Museum's Laboratory” at Wallraff-Richartz-Museum on Saturday, 24 February 2024.

We will meet at the Foyer of the Wallraff-Richartz-Museum, Obenmarspforten 40, 50667 Cologne, at 2.15 pm, 15 min ahead of the tour to allow time for cloakroom and distribution of entrance tickets, so that we can start the tour on time.

Please register by Thursday, 22 February, by completing the online registration form. We encourage you to sign-up early, as we allocate places on a first-come, first-served basis.

The guided tour is free of charge for members of the German Friends of LSE. The participation fee for non-members is €10, which we ask you to either pay by Paypal or provide us a SEPA direct debit mandate.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you at this event.

Kind regards,

Manuel Geggus, Vice President
Nadine Sieren, Regional Coordinator
