Alfred Flechtheim Correspondence

Date 1931-1937

A file containing correspondence and press cuttings refering to Alfred Flechtheim (1 Apr 1878 - 9 Mar 1937), an art dealer based in Germany whose business was liquidated under the National Socialist government in the 1930s. Following his emigration to France, Flechtheim continued to organise exhibitions, and worked for the London Gallery run by Fred Hoyland Mayor, represented Kahnweiler's Galerie Simon at Mayor's in London, and also liasied with the gallery Alex Reid & Lefèvre as well as Thos. Agnew & Sons.

The majority of correspondence within this file pertains to his application to become a French citizen, which was incomplete at the time of his death on 9 March 1937 (reputedly from blood poisoning after a fall in London).
