The Estate

According to the statutes, Alfred Ehrhardt's oeuvre was given to the Alfred Ehrhardt Stiftung when it was established and so given over to the public. Since then the task is to prepare the photographic estate for preservation and to take an inventory of it. The estate includes approximately 10,000 silver gelatine prints, 1,000 glass negatives, 5,000 celluloid negatives,  and 100 glass slides. In addition to the copyright for the oeuvre, the sources are available such as the complete manuscripts, typescripts, note books, magazines, newspaper clippings and books from Alfred Ehrhardt's library, which might be relevant for research purposes. This material from the estate can be made accessible on location in the Alfred Ehrhardt Stiftung upon request. The approximately 120 paintings, drawings and graphic prints, however, which are also property of the foundation now, remain partly in the care of the family. Most are kept in a secured external depository in Berlin.

Photographs by Alfred Ehrhardt online in the image databases of our cooperationspartners: Deutsche Fotothek, Dresden, bpk Bildagentur für Kunst, Kultur und Geschichte, Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek.
