Each Grant recipient also will receive professional mentorship with a member of Christie’s international Restitution team to further support their work. Applications will be accepted until 31 May, and award recipients will be announced on 3 December 2023, to coincide with the Washington Conference anniversary.



NEW YORK, NY.- In addition to hosting a year-long global programme marking the 25th anniversary of the Washington Principles, Christie’s announced the 2023 Christie’s Grant for Nazi-Era Provenance Research. The Grant, to be offered to three scholars worldwide (£5,000 each), will fund forward-thinking academic post-graduate research into subjects related to Nazi-era provenance studies. Each Grant recipient also will receive professional mentorship with a member of Christie’s international Restitution team to further support their work. Applications will be accepted until 31 May, and award recipients will be announced on 3 December 2023, to coincide with the Washington Conference anniversary.

Sarah Done, Director, Christie’s Restitution Department explains: “These new grants deepen Christie’s ongoing commitment to engage with Nazi-era restitution, to expand scholarship in provenance research, and to ensure continued focus on this vital topic, providing support to an emerging new generation of researchers.”

Christie’s will work together with an international panel of leading experts in the field of provenance research to select the Grant recipients, including the following:

- Anne Webber, Co-Founder and Co-Chair, Commission for Looted Art in Europe

- Marc Masurovsky, Co-Founder, Holocaust Art Restitution Project

- Dr. Meike Hopp, Professor of Digital Provenance, Technische Universität Berlin

- Bianca Gaudenzi, Research Fellow, Zukunftskolleg, University of Konstanz; German Historical Institute in Rome; Wolfson College, Cambridge

- Nikola Doll, Research Director, Deutsches Forum für Kunstgeschichte (German Center for Art History)

The 2023 Christie’s Grant for Nazi-Era Provenance Research is made possible with support from The Christie’s Fund, with a vision to increase and support voices under-represented in provenance research, and to support early career development for scholars, particularly encouraging those for whom financial support will significantly impact their opportunity to pursue specialized research.

The application process will close on 31 May 2023 to graduate students in art history or with an interdisciplinary interest in Nazi-era related provenance research. Early applications are encouraged and submissions should be directed via email to Restitution2023@christies.com | The Christies Grant for Nazi-era Provenance Research
