Gurlitt Provenance Research/Project “Provenienzrecherche Gurlitt” The German Lost Art Foundation is taking over the provenance investigations of the Gurlitt Art Collection. The “Schwabinger Kunstfund” task force failed to investigate the entire collection in the period allotted, and there is much work still do to analyze the true origins and ownership of artworks in the Cornelius Gurlitt’s possession. More than three years after the discovery of the trove, ongoing “research efforts will focus on determining the provenance of works which have not yet been conclusively clarified. Of primary interest are works for which there is a suspicion that they went missing as a result of Nazi persecution or for which such claims have been made.” The project team is headed by Dr. Andrea Baresel-Brand, and funded by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. One day the research findings are expected to “be published in German and English following their evaluation by the review experts.”
