Police find $1B in art taken by Nazis

Trove of Nazi-Looted Art Reported Found in Munich Apartment

Found Nazi Art Valued At $1B Is Worth How Much After Tax?


I recently watched a documentary on Nazi confiscation of art that was quite fascinating. I'm very glad this art has been found.

This is really incredible news. The implications for everyone involved are beyond belief -

- hundreds of Jewish victims and their descendants arguing with the German government. They will keep the lawyers busy for decades.

- over a billion Euros worth of art presently held and to be adjudicated by the Germans, something they don't want to touch with a barge pole but will have to.

- post-war sales in Switzerland of known stolen works, some through Jewish art dealers. Where are these works now? It won't be pretty.

This will be a great story.

You are right about litigation over this. About 15 years ago there was an ongoing suit by the survivors of a woman whose portrait was painted by Gustav Klimt. The nazis (Austrian branch) had stolen it and it wound up in a museum in Vienna. As I recall the descendants of the owner/subject (Bloch, I believe) won their suit, recovered the painting and it is worth in the eight or nine figure range.
