Frankfurter Kunstkabinett
Frankfurt, 1953

This was already the 3rd show that Fontaine has had at the Frankfurter Kunstkabinett, but with the added prestige of Alexander Calder. The Frankfurter Kunstkabinett was the first gallery to open in Frankfurt after the war.This gallery was the primary venu for Fontaine during the entire 25 years in Europe.  Hanna Bekker vom Rath, the founder, and Virginia became good friends. They travelled around Europe together visiting artists to collect art for Hanna's  gallery and collection.
