Dietrich and Mary Ann Mohr wanted to create a « Fonds de Dotation » which would have the mission to protect his work.
They thought of several of their near friends from different distinguished professions and complementary to one another to constitute a Board of Trustees.
The Fund is « operationel » and its mission is to valorize, promote and protect the works of Dietrich-Mohr who was an important actor in the world of abstract metal sculpture after the last war.
The Fund has a cultural dimension of general interest, namely to make known to a wider public the diversity, inventiveness and dynamism that make the singularity of the work of the sculpteur Dietrich-Mohr.
The members of the Board :
DIETRICH-MOHR (1924-2016) and Mary Ann Mohr, Founders
Gilles HITTINGER-ROUX, (lawyer) President
Lydia HARAMBOURG, (Historian and Art Critic, Membre Correspondant de l’Institut, Académie des Beaux-Arts) Vice President
Mary Ann MOHR, Tresurer
Louis STREISSEL (Historian, retired from the French National Education system) Secretary
Felicie MICHAELI, (Auditor) Administrator
Yvon CHU, (Architect) Administrator
Patrick BAUCHET (Contractor) Administrator
Romain SCHUMANN (Banker e.r.) Administrator
The « Fonds de Dotation » was declared by the « Préfecture de Paris » on December 9, 2015 and its creation was confirmed in the « Journal Officiel » of December 26, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Patrick-Gilles Persin, who was our Vice-President and a pioneer in the creation of the Fund. He died in his sleep during the night of Thursday 7/8 February 2019 in Bourg-en-Bresse. The burial ceremony was held on February 15th. He was a man of great culture, a scholar and very invested in the Dietrich-Mohr Endowment Fund. He was a real comrade with a voice and a beautiful pen that we will miss immensely.
