Completed a study of the controversial provenance of works from the collection of Cornelius Gurlitt
ARTinvestment.RU   27 мая 2020

For 8 years, since the beginning of the work, experts managed to find the heirs of 14 works. And about 1,000 items remain in the border "gray zone"

Almost eight years after the discovery of in the house of Cornelius Gurlitt more than 1,5 thousand works from the collection of his father, art-дилера who collaborated with the Nazi regime, Hildebrand Gurlitt, the work on the study of the provenance of these works came to an end.

However, we cannot say that it was a success: over the years the specialists of the state and the German organization German Lost Art Foundation managed to find the heirs of the owners of 14 works and to establish the fact of "suspicious origin" another 500 jobs. Around 1000 items have remained in a grey zone.

This result is quite expected: in 2016-м year, when the German government decided to extend the work of experts "is still at least a year," discussed in detail the reasons for the previous period search found the owners only 5 pictures. Since these causes (the bulk of the finds — draw sheets and graphics, often do not have a detailed description of the archives and documents, allowing to set the owner of the work) did not disappear and the research process has stalled. About this recently and said Foundation Director Gilbert Lupfert, commenting on the situation publication Swiss Info: "We have exhausted all available types of investigations."

anyway, regardless of the results of this investigation, collection, inherited by will Gurlitt Art Museum Bern, continues his life. After several exhibitions in Switzerland and Germany, last year she went to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
