Degenerative Art from Nazi Germany

Shortly before WWII the Nazi Party created a list of all the art it saw as going against the new Nazi Germany and then started to confiscate or destroy it. The Victoria and Albert Museum in London (South Kensington, near to the Natural History Museum and Science Museum) has always had a copy of the book which listed the degenerative art but it’s been kept in their archives and only accessible by university students and professors. Things are going to change though when they put a copy of the book online for everyone to see. It includes artwork by famous artists such as Klee and Picasso.
