BERLIN: New claim on Matisse oil paintings found in home of Munich collector
A second person has come forward with a claim on a painting found among a trove of artworks in the Munich home of a reclusive collector, including works believed looted from Jewish owners by the Nazis.
The new claim on Henri Matisse's "Femme assise" will at least temporarily delay its planned return to the heirs of a deceased Paris-based art collector.
Munich art collector Cornelius Gurlitt's attorney Christoph Edel said Monday he is legally obligated to investigate the new claim before these paintings can be handed over. He did not identify the new claimant.
Authorities found about 1,400 artworks at Cornelius Gurlitt's home two years ago and have been investigating their provenance. Cornelius Gurlitt has told his attorney to return all artworks found to be Nazi-looted art to their Jewish owners or heirs. (From Fox News)
Mr. Cornelius Gurlitt's father bought and sold art under the Nazis, including works looted from Jewish homes and works bought from Jewish owners under duress.
The collector's lawyers accept a small portion of the works may be disputed.But the great bulk of the trove, they say, is the collector's for him to do with as he wishes
