The records of G. Cramer Oude Kunst in The Hague in the Netherlands document the gallery's business since the early 1900s
until the late 1990s, with the bulk of the collection dating from 1938 to 1998. Of particular research value are Gustav Cramer's
WWII correspondence and sales receipts regarding his dealings with Nazi agents for Adolf Hitler's museum in Linz. The archive
may be the only uncensored dealer archive documenting the international art market in Nazi-occupied Europe. It comprises over
sixty years of the gallery's correspondence and financial records. Also present is a portion of the photographic archive,
including circa 500 glass plate negatives, and sales catalogs. At this time, only Series I. Correspondence, Series II. Financial
records, and Series V. Miscellaneous papers are processed and available for access. The remainder of the collection is still
in process and will be made available for research upon completion.
