This session will provide useful and precise information regarding a wide range of provenance research endeavors in museums, research libraries, archives, and academic institutions. This includes the investigation of original works of art, works recorded in the archives of dealers and collectors and the invaluable tools utilized in the research process. Rodica Tanjala Krauss will discuss a unique manuscript log from a major auction house that will serve as a valued resource for art history and interdisciplinary scholars, for art dealers and connoisseurs, for collectors and artists, and for the research of art market politics. Lynn Rother will provide practical knowledge regarding the methodology, resources and, and challenges of Nazi-era provenance research in art museums. Louis Adrean will discuss a National Endowment for the Arts grant funded project that examines the provenance history of collections and educational collaborations at the Ingalls Library, The Cleveland Museum of Art. Philip Dombowsky will provide an overview of the Max Stern Art Restitution Project and will present case studies to illustrate the complexities of researching the provenance of Nazi-era looted art. Catherine Larkin will report on a Samuel H. Kress funded digital project to provide electronic access to information and updated provenance on William Randolph Hearst's art purchases, including some objects unintentionally acquired from forced sales during the Nazi Era.
