Bibliography Kunsthandel im deutschsprachigen Raum bis 1945

As part of the international collaboration project „German Sales 1930-1945. Art Works, Art Markets, and Cultural Policy“ between Heidelberg University Library, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and Getty Research Institute around 10,000 auction catalogues dating from 1901 to 1945 from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the countries occupied by Germany during the Second World War have been digitized and put online since 2013. The relevant secondary literature used during the content-based cataloguing and research was compiled in the bibliography “Bibliography on the Art Market in German-speaking Countries Until 1945.” Moreover, the bibliography will be continuously extended with the aim of creating a comprehensive and up-to-date interdisciplinary database of research literature on the expropriation policy and the role of the German art market in the Nazi era. To a lesser extent, the topics of provenance research and restitution efforts are also dealt with.

DER STURM Bibliography

The bibliography “Der Sturm“ was compiled at the Stuttgart Research Centre for Text Studies (SRCTS) in cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart (ABK Stuttgart). It encompasses the secondary literature on Herwarth Walden, on the magazines “Der Sturm“ und “Die Sturmbühne,“ which were both published by him, as well as literature concerning the "Sturm"-books and books from the publishing house “Der Sturm.“ This bibliography will bring together current international and interdisciplinary literature that will allow thorough and comprehensive research.
