Stolen, returned, sold!

The art world is getting an unexpected boost these days from Adolf Hitler and the boys, no less.

More and more art returned to the proper owners after the WW2 lootings by Nazis (as well as the Red Army) is being sold in public auction.

Quote:

Since 1996, Sotheby’s and Christie’s alone have sold a combined total of about £140 million ($252 million at today’s exchange rate) of art returned to families from museums and private collections.

I, for one, found this article exceedingly interesting. Read, as they say, the whole thing here.
