At a dedication ceremony on May 24, 2017 two of Frederick Jaeger's paintings, 'The Raven' and 'George, Fritz's Son, At Eight', became part of the permanent collection of the Leopold Museum in Vienna, which houses Dr. Rudolf Leopold's famous collection of late 19th and early 20th century art, including many major paintings by Klimt, Schiele and Egger-Lienz. The Museum selected the paintings from this website.
Interestingly Dr. Leopold himself once tried to acquire one of Frederick Jaeger's paintings, 'View From A Window', at an auction at Vienna's Dorotheum but was outbid by Dr. Günther Goller, George Jaeger's childhood friend. Dr. Goller's tireless efforts have been crucial to bringing some of Frederick Jaeger's paintings back to Vienna.
After his untimely death in September 2017, Günther Goller's widow, Frau Inge Goller generously donated this painting to the Leopold Museum, so that it became part of the Leopold collection after all, making it the third Jaeger painting in the Museum’s collection.
