The portraits of Max Schmidt (1914) from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, and Carl Leo Schmidt (1911) from the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection, constitute two of three fragments of the Triple Portrait of the Schmidt Brothers which was cut up in the 1950s (the third fragment, depicting Hugo Schmidt is now lost). The two surviving elements have now been brought together for the first time in fifty years and are the subject of the next in the Contexts of the Permanent Collection exhibition series.
