Spoliation

Published below are lists of works from the Walker Art Gallery's collection whose provenance is either incomplete or uncertain. We hope this will assist with the worldwide search for works of art that may have been wrongfully taken during the Holocaust and World War Two.

In publishing these lists we aim to advertise as widely as possible the details of specific works of art, the whereabouts and ownership of which cannot with confidence be specified for the years 1933-45. It should be noted that the inclusion of a work in these lists does not in itself indicate any suspicious circumstances, but simply that some provenance information is missing or uncertain. 

If you have any information regarding these works please contact the Walker Art Gallery|.
