184 Artworks from the Gurlitt trove in Salzburg being publicised at www.lostart.de
The Project "Gurlitt Provenance Research" at the German Lostart Foundation publishes another 184 artworks from the Gurlitt estate via the Lost Art Database.
These are artworks from the Salzburg estate of Cornelius Gurlitt where at present a possible loss due to persecution by the National Socialist regime cannot be excluded. Possible claimants shall thus be enabled to identify lost artworks in order to support their claims. The Lost Art Database of the German Lostart Foundation is the core medium for this.
To date a complete list of the artworks found in the Salzburg estate of Cornelius Gulitt had been published only by the Kunstmuseum Bern which according to Mr. Gurlitt’s last will is his appointed heir.
By publishing the artworks via Lostart.de another important step towards transparency is taken. The Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media Minister of State Prof. Monika Grütters had publicly announced this step already last week.
