Art was his parents a concern, for Bernd Riedle was art a beautiful minor matter. Nevertheless, he attended during his studies of business administration in Munich together with his friend U. Grosse. almost every week an art gallery. But that was it. The artworks by Fridel Dethleffs-Edelmann and by Ursula Dethleffs were rare for him a theme: The paintings of his aunt Fridel were still politically controversial, to Ursula, the ratio was kinship. Ulm was of Isny 90 km - that was far. They met infrequently. Only when he was moved to Isny and invited by the family Dethleffs to many exhibitions of SOB, his eye for the art really opened.
Since 1994, Riedle is responsible for the art collection Dethleffs - after the notarized contract of inheritance of the family Dethleffs of 1961. The most important issue of this Treaty between Arist, Fridel and Ursula was in 1961, however, not the art, but: legal inheritance save for daughter Ursula, after the death of parents. From the assets, therefore the majority has been overwritten on Ursula in the contract. However, the parents retain the right to use the assets. In addition, had any subsequent changes as donation, foundation, etc. are always certified jointly by the surviving family members. Arist Dethleffs as well as Ursula Dethleffs could after the death of F. Dethleffs-Edelmann (24 September 1982) is not alone, but determine only together over the family fortune. Since Ursula two years before her father on May 07. died in 1994, they alone could not establish legally binding foundation with assets of Dethleffs family.
Nevertheless, the terminally ill Ursula Dethleffs was moved up to the 20.04.1994 from consultants to let notarize a foundation with substantial parts of the family fortune by a notary: the & quot; Friedel Dethleffs-Edelmann and Ursula Dethleffs Foundation & quot; .
