January 2019: Lexicon of Austrian Provenance Research - Lexikon der österreichischen Provenienzforschung

Events and Conferences

To mark the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Austrian Commission for Provenance Research (Kommission für Provenienzforschung) and of the Washington Principles, the Commission has published a digitised encyclopaedia of provenance research. It contains more than 200 articles and online entries with the main focus on individuals and institutions in Austria between 1930 and 1960 in the fields of museums, art and cultural policy, collecting and the art trade. The Lexicon combines interdisciplinary and cross-institutional research and will be continuously expanded. The work of the Commission over the past 20 years has led to the return of thousands of objects from Austrian federal collections and the Lexicon is intended as a way to transmit and share the knowledge obtained in the course of that work.

The Lexicon is at http://www.lexikon-provenienzforschung.org/.

A presentation about the Lexicon will take place at the University of Vienna on the evening of 29 January 2019.
