Foundation Board appoints new honorary executive board member
At its meeting yesterday, the Foundation Board of the German Lost Art Foundation, which is chaired by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Monika Grütters, appointed Prof. Gilbert Lupfer as its new honorary executive board member. Prof. Lupfer succeeds Prof. Uwe Schneede in the position of academic and research director as of April 1, 2017. Prof. Schneede’s two-year term of office now concludes as agreed.
Monika Grütters said: “With the art historian Professor Lupfer, the German Lost Art Foundation has gained an exceptionally distinguished and active leader to oversee its academic and research-related matters. Prof. Lupfer has earned an impressive reputation in the provenance research field with the Dresden-based ‘Daphne’ project. His experience in research and academic cooperation make him the ideal person to ensure the Foundation continues on its successful path and further establishes itself, both nationally and internationally, as a key point of contact and funder of provenance research in Germany.”
