Date 2015.08.11

The Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion is now fund­ing a project at the Leopold Hoesch Mu­se­um in Düren which will sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly in­ves­ti­gate the prove­nance of all items ac­quired be­tween 1946 and 1968 to de­ter­mine whether they had been con­fis­cat­ed by the Nazi regime. The project kicked off with a pre­sen­ta­tion in Düren by Dr. Uwe Hart­mann, head of the de­part­ment for prove­nance re­search at the Ger­man Lost Art Foun­da­tion.
