The industrialist Friedrich Otto Hasse was considered a knowledgeable art collector in his time. He owned paintings by artists of his generation such as Kokoschka, Braque, Ensor, Vlaminck and others. He also participated in the 1920s trend of collecting Chinese art. A photograph from around 1980 shows a part of his collection, approximately 50 ceramics and bronzes in a glass cabinet (see detail picture online). One of the main subjects of the collection was Chinese ceramics from the Song to Ming dynasties. He acquired these pieces, as documented by extant invoices, at Hugo Meyl in 1924 and at the Cassirer & Helbing auctions in Berlin. The documents suggest that his main period of collecting was between 1924 and 1929.
