Half a Million Records on Early 20th-Century German Art Market Added to Getty Provenance Index

June 18, 2019

A four-year digitization and metadata project at the Getty Research Institute has made thousands of art sales and auction catalogs searchable online.After four years of work, the Getty Provenance Index® has greatly expanded its database of German art sales catalogs, adding nearly 570,000 records of artwork sales for the years 1900 to 1929. This expansion, adding to existing records for the years 1930 to 1945, gives researchers in provenance and the art market unprecedented information on auction sales in Germany and Austria during the volatile years of the early twentieth century, including the periods of World War I, the Weimar Republic, and the years of politically sanctioned Nazi looting prior to and during World War II.
