German Sales 1930-1945: Art Works, Art Markets, and Cultural Policy

An international collaboration between The Getty Research Institute, the Heidelberg University Library and the Art Library, Berlin State Museums to create an open, searchable database of German art auction catalogs from 1930-1945.

The goal of the project "German Sales 1930-1945" is to bibliographically identify auction catalogs from Germany, Switzerland, and Austria from the period 1930 to 1945, to digitize them, convert them using OCR into searchable texts, and make them accessible as a research database on the Internet for scientific study. The project will provide indispensable sources for provenance research and for art and social science research concerning the German art market, and will make them freely accessible to the general public.
