It’s been an enormous privilege to assist the family and friends of Margaret West in placing four important works by Margaret in the collection of the Danner Stiftung at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich. The selection includes two brooches from the ‘Fatal Flowers’ series of 2004 and two 2001 brooches.

Thanks to the Danner Foundation and the wonderful staff a the Pinakothek for their wisdom and insight in adding this important Australian voice to such an impressive collection. Thanks to Otto Künzli for his advocacy and thanks to Margaret’s passionate team here in Australia.
