Police find $1B in art taken by Nazis

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.

I wonder if Neal and Mozzie are behind this?

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.
