Research into Nazi-confiscated cultural property in the museum's collection

The Dresden State Art Collections embarked on research initially in 2001. In 2008 it embarked on the Provenance Research, Registration and Inventory Project 'Daphne' for the systematic provenance research of all acquisitions since 1933 which

The Daphne project description states that the documentation of Daphne’s results is multi-levelled:

  1. objects whose provenance is uncertain or questionable as well as objects whose rightful owner or successor is not known to the museum will gradually be published in the Magdeburg database www.lostart.de.
  2. Starting in 2010, selected parts of the collections were to be presented online.
  3. When the project is completed, the basic data of the entire museum’s holdings will be searchable online.

For further details, see  http://www.skd.museum/en/research/research-and-scientific-cooperation/provenance-research/index.html

Research into cultural property missing from the museum

The Dresden State Art Collections have published a number of missing objects on the Lost Art Internet Database (http://www.lostart.de), the German website on looted cultural property.
