German art museum says 18 works may have been looted by Nazis

A German art museum says it has found 18 works in its collection that may have been stolen from Jews by the Nazis.

Some of the sculptures and drawings in the Kunsthalle Mannheim are by artists Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Max Slevogt and Edgar Degas, according to reports. The museum has registered the pieces with the German Lost Art Foundation and on the Lostart database in hopes of reaching possible heirs.

The museum, which has been researching the provenance of its collection since the end of 2011, announced Tuesday that it has found “clues that these works could have been stolen by the NS [National Socialist] regime.”

While most of the objects examined turned out not to have any questionable acquisition history, the museum reportedly has made only a dent in its provenance research.
