The topical groups include photographs, notes and other papers on paintings of Italian and Spanish origin; materials concerning the Fryszmann collection; materials on Welt im Umbruch and Prag um 1600 exhibitions; photographs of artworks Geissler considered wrongly attributed; and photographs of artworks by artists he could not identify.
