Classen Collection

Christa und Dr. Wolfgang Classen

During their many years of collecting, Christa and Dr. Wolfgang Classen acquired a unique collection of French artist books. In a generous gesture the couple, she a librarian by profession and he a paper manufacturer, put the collection into a foundation sustained by the Sparkassenverband Westfalen-Lippe, the Westfälischen Provinzial Versicherung and the WestLB AG as well as the Classens.
