An den Kunsthistoriker Siegfried Salzmann (1928–1993): “[…] Your idea of arranging a comprehensive exhibition of my work is agreeable to me but an exhibition of my work, […] is a complicated enterprise and I will co-operate with you provided I know the details of your plans. 1- Who will take responsibility of insurance and transport […] 2- Are you intending to make the exhibition in your Museum alone […] 3- Can you guarantee that some of the work will be bought, either from your Museum or some other of the participating Museums? My prices are begining with a hundred thousand dollars and up […]” – Siegfried Salzmann war von 1971 bis 1984 Direktor des Wilhelm Lehmbruck-Museums in Duisburg und anschließend bis 1993 Direktor der Kunsthalle Bremen.
