ANN:Getty Provenance Index® expands its coverage of German auction sales catalogs (previously spanning 1930–1945) to include those from 1900 to 1929

 Getty Provenance Index® has expanded its coverage of German auction sales catalogs (previously spanning 1930–1945) to include those from 1900 to 1929, enabling a fuller understanding of this volatile period and of the dealers and collectors involved. More than 3,140 auction catalogs from over 130 auctions houses from dozens of cities across Germany and Austria were added to the Sales Catalogs database. Over 568,500 records are now searchable online, containing paintings, sculptures, drawings, and miniatures.

The updated German Sales webpage is here: http://www.getty.edu/research/tools/provenance/german_sales.html
