Product Description

Vintage

Imported from USA

Every few months you'll read a newspaper story of the discovery of some long-lost art treasure hidden away in a German
basement or a Russian attic: a Cranach, a Holbein, even, not long ago, a da Vinci. Such treasures ended up far from the
museums and churches in which they once hung, taken as war loot by Allied and Axis soldiers alike. Thousands of
important pieces have never been recovered. Lynn Nicholas offers an astonishingly good account of the wholesale ravaging
of European art during World War II, of how teams of international experts have worked to recover lost masterpieces in
the war's aftermath and of how governments "are still negotiating the restitution of objects held by their respective
nations."
