The Original Home Before the Stasi came-a-Calling

Editor's Note: The Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder, was sold by Christie’s London on 11 December 1987 as lot 40. It was consigned by a West German individual (involved in business transactions with the East) to Christie’s. The somewhat faded photograph is a photograph the Stasi took during the raid at Helmuth Meissner’s home in 1982. The better quality photograph together with the description is taken from the Christie’s catalogue. The origin of the painting sold by Christie’s as deriving from Helmuth Meissner in Dresden is certain and undisputed.
