'Degenerate Art': List of 25 Works from Munich Find Made Public

German authorities on Monday published a list of 25 out of roughly 1,400 artworks discovered in a Munich apartment. The move is the first step in an effort to speed research into the provenance of Nazi-era acquisitions, following international criticism of Germany's handling of the discovery.

Authorities have publicized the names of 25 paintings out of the astounding cache of more than 1,400 artworks discovered in the Munich apartment of a reclusive collector whose father was reportedly hired to procure works for Hitler throughout Nazi-occupied Europe.

The paintings have been catalogued on Lostart.de, Germany's Magdeburg-based central database for missing works. All of the artworks, listed here in alphabetical order, are thought to have been acquired by means "linked to Nazi persecution."
