  1. Suspected ‘Nazi Loot’ Art Returned to German Recluse

    A massive trove of art that investigators suspected had been stolen by the Nazis is being returned to a German recluse. Some 1,280 works of art, including masterpieces by Chagall, Picasso and Matisse, were confiscated two years ago from the Munich home of Cornelius Gurlitt, 81, the son of an art collector who worked with the Nazis during World War II. A court has ruled that the art will continue to be owned by Gurlitt unless authorities can prove the works were looted.
