(AP) BERLIN - German authorities are posting online another 101 works from the huge trove of art found at a reclusive collector’s apartment in Munich, bringing the total so far to 219.

The task force looking into the find said Thursday that prosecutors in Augsburg have cleared drawings and watercolors by artists including Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Eugene Delacroix, Honore Daumier and Albrecht Duerer for posting on the official "Lost Art" website. They’re among the works officials believe may have been seized under the Nazis.

Authorities found more than 1,400 works of art at Cornelius Gurlitt’s Munich apartment last year while investigating a tax case. Prosecutors are checking whether up to 590 pieces were seized by the Nazis.

Officials started gradually posting the works online earlier this month.
