kunsthandel (bedrijf)
The firm Goudstikker was founded in 1845 by the brothers J. and S. Goudstikker, and was continued by the son of the former, Eduard Goudstikker. His son Jacques started to work for the firm in 1919, and took over after his father passed away in 1924. At first the art dealership was located at the Kalverstraat in Amsterdam, but from 1927 onwards they relocated to Herengracht 458. When Jacques had to flee the country at the start of the Second World War in May 1940, he left his business in the hands of his accountant A. Sternheim. Unfortunately Sternheim passed away days after Goudstikker left, and Goudstikker himself fell to his death on the ship he was on, fleeing the Netherlands. This left the art dealership ownerless. Two employees, among them A. A. ten Broek, took over, and were soon joined by Alois Miedl, who quickly took over the leadership of the business. In July, Hermann Göring heard about the large and excellent collection of the art dealership, and in that same month he struck a deal with the new owners Ten Broek and Miedl and aquired the rights to all the paintings, drawings, etc. then owned by the art dealership. However, Miedl wanted to own the business for himself, and struck a deal with Ten Broek, buying back a large part of the collection, and Göring himself sold a lot of art works back to Miedl. This tainted the good name Jacques Goudstikker had made for himself. Miedl continued to sell art works to Nazi Germany, which led to an array of problems after the war dealing with looted art and rightful ownership.
