    Abstract:
    The European Commission on Looted Art, known officially as the Central Registry of Information on Looted Cultural Property 1933-1945, has accepted the results of my findings on the provenance of the works purchased by the American UPI journalist Robert Beattie from the notorious "art dealer to the Nazis" Bernhard Böhmer in 1940. The collection of works on paper, which includes Franz Marc's Schöpfungsgeschichte II (1914) and Geburt der Pferde (1913), has been concealed in the Ringling's archives for more than 60 years, never seen by the public. This article delves into the Ringling's obfuscations as well as the tracing of the two Marc works to museums in Stuttgart and Mannheim, with the help of many people, from curators to attorneys.
