The fascinating history of the late-19th to early-20th-century development of the museums of Berlin reveals the enduring legacy of the gifts and generosity from one major patron, James Simon. His influences through donations and financial support on the city’s art institutions enabled Berlin to become an artistic and cultural destination of the world.
