Thanks to the generous support of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, the Pinakothek der Moderne is able to acquire an important work for its photography collection. The spectacular purchase of the famous series The Brown Sisters by the photographer Nicholas Nixon adds an iconic work to the collection of the Pinakothek der Moderne. The series of forty-four photographs has long since been on the wish list of Dr. Inka Graeve Ingelmann, director of the Collection of Photography and New Media. To make that possible, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung is covering the entire cost of the purchase.
