Abstract

The present article focuses on the art dealer Hermann Pächter, who was active in Berlin at the turn of the twentieth century. Pächter was the first to show Japanese images and other artefacts at his gallery. Later on, he combined this with contemporary European art. This mixture was unique and an eye opener for the public.
