Research into Nazi-confiscated works of art in the museum's collection

Research into works of art missing from the museum
In 1937 a special commission set up by Hitler and headed by Hans Adolf Ziegler systematically combed through German museum collections and confiscated art the National Socialists considered "degenerate". Many were displayed in the infamous "Degenerate Art" exhibition that opened in Munich in July 1937. The museum was one of the institutions most heavily affected by these confiscations. On two separate occasions a total of 157 sculptures, 455 prints and 14 sculptures were confiscated. The works met with very different fates. Some were sold, others were destroyed. A few found their way back to the collection before and after the war. In 1990 the museum published a catalogue that accompanied an exhibition on the events of 1937 at the museum. It contains historical background and a list of works of art with photographs and details of their provenance and fate after confiscation. It can be obtained from the museum. A copy is available at the Central Registry for consultation.
