The Munich Art Hoard: Hitler’s Dealer and his Secret Legacy
In February 2012, in a Munich flat belonging to Cornelius Gurlitt, an elderly recluse, German customs authorities seized 1,280 paintings, drawings and prints by artists including Picasso, Monet, Matisse, Chagall, Otto Dix and Paul Klee.
Former Bloomberg arts reporter Catherine Hickley delved into archives and conducted dozens of interviews to uncover the story behind the headlines. Her book illuminates a dark period of German history, untangling a web of deceit and silence that has prevented the heirs of Jewish collectors from recovering art stolen from their families more than seven decades ago by the Nazis.
