Looted Art From The Holocaust In The Israel Museum

Looted Art from the Holocaust in the Israel Museum 

The Israel Museum, Jerusalem will present on February: Orphaned Art: Looted Art from the Holocaust, an exhibition exploring the fate of works of art looted during World War II that were subsequently brought to Israel. Culled from 1,200 such works held in custody by the Israel Museum, all of which lack clear ownership history, Orphaned Art features over fifty paintings, drawings, prints, and books, together with a selection of Jewish ceremonial objects, and includes such artists as Jan Both, Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, Marc Chagall, Egon Schiele, and Alfred Sisley.
