Research on Museum Collection Provenance

The Frye Art Museum information posted on the American Association of Museums’ Nazi-Era Provenance Internet Portal is in accordance with the Guidelines Concerning the Unlawful Appropriation of Objects during the Nazi era, which was adopted by the Association of Art Museum Directors in June 1998.

The Frye Collection research posted on the AAM site is the result of a thorough examination of our collection for works that were created before 1946 and acquired after 1932, which may have changed ownership during this same period, or may have been in continental Europe between those dates. Research into the provenance of all collection works is ongoing.
