Publication of Provenance Research at the Voralberg Museum and the Resolution of the State Government February 2012
Following an agreement of 28 February 2012 with the State Government of Voralberg, the Voralberg Landesmuseum
in Austria has published a list of objects identified through its Provenance Research Project. These can be viewed here
The items fall into three categories: A - expropriated objects which are recommended for restitution; B - expropriated objects which came to the museum in the Nazi era but whose location is currently unknown; C -objects whose provenance is problematic and further information is needed.
The owners of the expropriated objects recommended for restitution are the Fairholme family of the Villa Wellenau (the villa was confiscated and the contents given to the Museum - paintings, watercolours, photographs, books, porcellain), the Pollak collection (decorative objects including porcellain given to the Museum by Hitler as a gift), and the St Peter Dominican Monastery of Bludenz (wooden objects).
