Nazi plunder during Hitler's regime and particularly during World War II was arguably the greatest theft of cultural property in history. Its aftermath lingers still: more than sixty years later, efforts to find looted art and return it to its rightful owners continue on both sides of the Atlantic. This panel discusses some recent such efforts, from those connected to the case of Max Stern (featured in the exhibition on view, Auktion 392: Reclaiming the Galerie Stern, Düsseldorf) to other recently closed and ongoing cases, including some in Florida.
Participants: - David Glasser, Executive Chairman, Ben Uri, The London Jewish Museum of Art (moderator); - Howard N. Spiegler, Partner, Herrick, Feinstein, LLP; Co-chair, Art Law Group, New York; - Dr. Roger Ward, Deputy Director and Chief Curator, Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson.
Auktion 392: Reclaiming the Galerie Stern, Düsseldorf runs from September 17--December 8, 2013 at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum on the campus of Rollins College.
