    Upon his return home to the United States in 1946, Wittmann began a thirty-year career at the Toledo Museum of Art which included his appointment to Director in 1959. Under his leadership, the museum established internationally-ranked education programs, tripled its collection, and doubled its exhibition space. His keen eye and innate understanding of the art market guided acquisitions of some of the best American, Dutch, and seventeenth-century Italian and French paintings available. He organized numerous successful exhibitions, including France: The Splendid Century (1961) and The Age of Rembrandt (1966). In honor of his retirement in 1976, the museum presented Treasures for Toledo, a retrospective of his most notable acquisitions (English)
