The German Lost Art Foundation, which is responsible for evaluating the provenance of the artworks that were found in Cornelius Gurlitt’s Munich apartment back in 2012, announced that ninety-one works were likely looted from Jewish owners during World War II. Gurlitt, who died in 2014, owned over 1,500 artworks that were amassed by his father, an art dealer who sold so-called degenerate art on behalf of the Nazi regime. The collection includes works by Henri Matisse, Max Liebermann, and Marc Chagall.
