Example text

Such financial support was dependent on Bremmer’s taste, of course. As Piet Mondriaan’s work gradually became more abstract, he ran up against Bremmer’s definition of acceptable painting. Mondriaan went his own way and lost Bremmer’s financial support. The same was true of Bart van der Leck, but he was unable to pull it off. 36 Something of a patron-client relationship formed, which for Bremmer was inspired by a love of art as well as by the expectation of being able to sell the work. As so often happens with patronage, the relationship was ambivalent and not merely friendly.

And there was plenty to write about. The amount of money involved was considerable; prices circulating in the press ranged from 25,000 to 75,000 Reichsmark per painting. The Berlin police became involved and began holding interrogations in Germany and the Netherlands, and this was before any party had filed a single complaint against Wacker. It all had to do with dissension in the art world. One person insisted that all the paintings were fakes while another said they were all genuine, and yet another that some were genuine and some were fake, which meant there was no agreement over the number and identity of the contested works.

After all, every dealer has had the experience of making a bad buy and knows how easily a presumed golden purchase can turn into a white elephant. If a dealer like Wacker had found himself entangled in an unfortunate transaction, none of his colleagues would have cried foul. So the unsympathetic reports that were heard about Otto Wacker starting on 28 November 1928 smack strongly of ex post facto assessments: once the affair surrounding the fake Van Goghs hit the newspapers, many people actually appeared to have known all along that Wacker was a crook and that his merchandise was of dubious content.
