184 Artworks from the Gurlitt trove in Salzburg being publicised at

Date 2016.03.23

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 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.
