Beckmann, Der Strand [The Beach], 1927, oil on canvas, 175 x 300 cm (68 8/9 x 118 1/9 inches). Location unknown. This work is in the Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art) database run by Freie Universität Berlin. I’m really hoping that this Beckmann painting is in the big ole Nazi stash found in Munich. Seems highly possible (though not certain) that this is the Max Beckmann painting, “Scene on Beach,” included on the (partial) list of stolen works.
Several articles have popped up over the past few days, though so far, no word on why it took German authorities so long to disclose their findings. Though apparently they’ve been investigating Gurlitt for tax evasion (not art theft), since first discovering his stash in the spring of 2011.

Oh, and I highly suggest NOT reading any of the comments on the New York Times, as they seem to be written mostly by insane, hysterical people (and yes, more so than usual).
