Who owned Claude Monet’s works and where did his paintings travel after their completion? Over the last two decades, provenance research has become an important focus of museum work. Its aim is to identify objects that may have been unlawfully appropriated, especially during the Nazi period, but also under Soviet occupation, in the GDR or in colonial contexts. Provenance research also provides new insights into the history of collecting, its institutions and protagonists. Looking at a selection of works in the exhibition, the tour addresses the possibilities and challenges of this complex field of research. Exploring the history of ownership, it also introduces some of his collectors. Linda Hacka, Research Fellow at the Museum Barberini, researches and documents the provenance of the museum’s collection.
