This exhibition celebrates the occasion of the recovery of the painting Ruth and Naemi by Julius Hübner (1806-1882). In 2005, after 60 years of being listed as a work lost during the War, the painting was discovered in a Berlin flee market. It was returned to the Nationalgalerie and restored.
Julius Hübner, who today is rarely known for more than his connection with the Düsseldorf school of painting, is introduced with a selection of his works. A second part of the exhibition illustrates the origins and the history of the painting as well as its reception in the context of 19th century art.
