The Clark Photograph and Clippings Archive contains nearly a million images that were used to teach and study art in the early twentieth century.  Sadly, some of these images represent the only remaining documentation of important works of art. The Lost Art Project draws on the Clark’s photograph and clipping collection to highlight these important lost works.

Today’s lost art work is St. Agnes by Alonso Cano (1601–1667):

St. Agnesis one of approximately 417 works of art from the Kaiser Friedrich Museum that was deposited in the Friedrichshain flak tower, or Flakturm, for safekeeping during the Second World War. The painting is presumed to have been destroyed when the tower was burned in May of 1945.
