The Art of the Steal. Nazi looting during World War II. Shauna Isaac Monday 08 October 2018

The Nazis looted over 20% of Western Art during World War II and the effects of this looting is still evident.  The lecturer, who among other things runs an Art Recovery Company, will look at why the Nazis looted art and how the looted art was returned after the war.  There are several landmark cases that will be discussed in detail, including Gustav Klint’s celebrated Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer (the Woman in Gold) and the stash of over 1 200 artworks found in possession of the son of a notorious Nazi dealer.
