N2 - Let k be a field finitely generated over the field of rational numbers, and Br(k) the Brauer group of k. For an algebraic variety X over k we consider the cohomological Brauer-Grothendieck group Br(X). We prove that the quotient of Br(X) by the image of Br(k) is finite if X is a K3 surface. When X is an abelian variety over k, and X is the variety over an algebraic closure k of k obtained from X by the extension of the ground field, we prove that the image of Br(X) in Br(X) is finite.
