U.S. list helps heirs track Nazi-looted art in Munich cache

(Continued)

BERLIN —

"I am wondering when the German government is going to call France about returning some of this," Masurovsky said. "There are clearly some works in the collection that came from France."

Hildebrand Gurlitt (1895-1956) was one of just four art dealers permitted by the Nazi authorities to sell artworks seized as "degenerate" from German museums from the end of 1938 to 1941.

Though they were instructed to sell them abroad for hard currency, the four passed many on to fellow German dealers or kept them for themselves, according to the Free University's "Degenerate Art" website.
