The German Lost Art Foundation provides financial support to projects which conduct provenance research on cultural assets that were confiscated by the Nazi regime. As a rule, all publicly funded organisations are eligible to apply for project funding. Funding can also be awarded to private museums and collections as long as they adhere to the Washington Principles and pursue research of public interest.

The Foundation’s “Lost Art” database allows users around the world to access information on cultural assets which were displaced or relocated as a result of National Socialism and/or World War II. These also include works, particularly from former Jewish owners, which were confiscated by the Nazis or, because of gaps in their provenance history, cannot be completely ruled out as such.
