Abstract


Structures of the transfers of Polish works of art between Europe and the United States in 1944 to 1949. Draft of a project

Abstract

The Centre for Historical Research project under discussion, of high relevance for the Polish-German provenance research with respect to the Polish art stolen during World War Two, is meant to open up and examine the yet-unknown structures of transfer of the cultural properties from Europe to the U.S. and the complicated relations between the Inter-Allied Committees dealing with the looted art in the years 1944–9. The project is expected to provide an innovative way of showing the issues of recovery and provenance of what is described as the NS-Raubkunst cultural property. The scale of transfers of these goods remains yet unknown, mainly due to scarcity of documentation and to no clear procedure in place for the transfer, which was in some cases spontaneously done by individuals. The project might complete the provenance research and enable to find traces of the pieces of art which have been declared missing after WW2.
