Officials in Bavaria announced on Thursday that two more works have been found in the apartment of Munich art hoarder Cornelius Gurlitt. The task force in charge of sifting through nearly 1300 artworks left by Gurlitt after he died 3 months ago says that sculpture, possibly by Auguste Rodin and Edgar Degas, are among a "small number" of newly discovered works.
Each work in the trove is part of the task force's provenance research project that will check for a history of ownership. Works deemed to be Nazi-looted, or to have been lost during the war, will be returned to their rightful owners. Bavarian officials, who discovered Gurlitt's hidden collection in 2012, have been criticized for the slow process of returning known Nazi loot.
The Kunstmuseum in Bern was named as Gurlitt's sole heir.
