Spoliation Research

The AGO is committed to investigating the provenance of works in its permanent collection, particularly as it pertains the ownership history of European painting and sculpture during the 1933–45 period.

The Gallery is investigating the most important paintings, sculptures and drawings in the European collection with gaps in their history of ownership between these critical years. Forty six of these works are listed here.

You can view images of these works and the information available on them. Click the left-side menu to browse these works by artist's last name, or browse the listing below to view each of the works.
