German Sales Catalogs, 1930-1945
The Getty Provenance Index® Databases provide online access to German Sales Catalogs from German-speaking countries -- Austria, Germany and Switzerland -- from 1930 to 1945. More than 250,000 individual auction sales records for paintings, sculptures and drawings are searchable by a range of parameters including artist name and nationality, type of subject matter, lot title, buyer or seller's name and the city in which the sale occurred. Each record in the Provenance Index is linked to the full PDF of its corresponding catalog residing at the website of Heidelberg University Library. The Databases also contain bibliographic information on ca. 3,000 catalogs including the physical location of copies with handwritten annotations.
