The Schwabing Art Trove Task Force released a statement that additional works of art, one painting and an unspecified number of sculptures, had been found in the Munich apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt. Initial examinations indicate that one sculpture is likely by Edgar Degas and another could be by Auguste Rodin. The works were first turned over to the Munich Probate Court. The court-appointed administrator of the Gurlitt estate in turn asked the Task Force to review the works for Nazi looted art.

Head of the Task Force Ingeborg Berggreen-Merkel stated that, following an investigation, all newly discovered works will be posted on the database Lostart.de as quickly as possible.
