The items being investigated, including works by László Moholy-Nagy, Max Slevogt and Edgar Degas, will be reported to the German Lost Art Foundation in the eastern German city of Magdeburg and published on the group's LostArt website, the museum said.
The website's publication of the works aims to help track their original owners.
The Kunsthalle Mannheim, located in the southern German state of Baden-Wurttemberg, started researching all paintings, sculptures and drawings in its possession in 2011.
