*Works of ‘degenerate art’ and mass-produced goods undergo a review process if suspicion that they were looted by the Nazis has been corroborated.
Detailed reports on 474 works have been prepared during the project.
Categorization following concluded research:
|Category red||Category yellow||Category green||Works excluded from further research*|
*for example, mass-produced goods
Red: A work is proven or highly likely to be Nazi-looted art.
Yellow: Provenance during the period between 1933 and 1945 is not entirely clear; there are gaps in the provenance.
Green: A work is proven or highly likely not to be Nazi-looted art.
Research on works of art categorized by the Taskforce according to the final report of 14.01.2016:
- Two works considered to be Nazi-looted art despite gaps in their provenance were further studied in an effort to close those gaps.
- Four works were classified as unlikely to be Nazi-looted art and confirmed as such during a project review in 2016.
- Ten works from the ‘Schwabing Art Trove’ were confirmed in 2017 as so-called ‘degenerate art’ unobjectionably acquired by their museums of origin – that is, acquired before 1933.
