Provenances. Works of art migrate

Documents that could clarify a provenance cannot be found for every work of art. For 1,482 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the collection of the Berlinische Galerie, it has been established that they are not cultural assets confiscated as a result of Nazi persecution. Their provenance has been clarified and is unobjectionable.

But for many works created before 1945, this needs to be further researched. It is the task of finding out the former owners and exact dates of purchases and sales. This is the only way to determine whether a work of art is wrongly in the collection. It is not always possible to completely reconstruct a provenance for the period between 1933 and 1945.

Nevertheless, every station that can be determined has a meaning. It is always a starting point for further questions of the museum's work and makes it possible to experience art from a different perspective. Beyond the motif and external form, provenances lead to the cultural contexts in which a work has developed its value. The media station provides information about the provenance of the paintings. Findings, research results and problems of research are described:
