‘The Murder’ provenance established

'The Murder', Paul Cézanne

‘The Murder’, Paul Cézanne

The Walker Art Gallery website contains our spoliation list – works from Walker Art Gallery’s collection whose provenance is either incomplete or uncertain. They are published to assist with the worldwide search for works of art that may have been wrongfully taken during the Holocaust and World War Two.

In publishing these lists we aim to advertise as widely as possible the details of specific works of art, the whereabouts and ownership of which cannot with confidence be specified for the years 1933-45.

The Murder‘, by Paul Cézanne, has recently been removed from the list, after its provenance was established thanks to research by staff at the Art Loss Register.
