Rightful Return: Recovery of Looted Art

Moderated by E. Randol Schoenberg

Led by E. Randol Schoenberg, an expert in handling cases involving looted art and the recovery of property stolen by the Nazi authorities during the Holocaust, this seminar will focus on the continued quest and subsequent challenges of art repatriation.

 Among his most prominent cases is that of “Republic of Austria v. Altmann” which resulted in the successful return of five paintings by Gustav Klimt, including the “Woman in Gold,” to their rightful owner. Over three sessions, we will examine the Klimt case, explore the history of art recovery as well as other interesting proceedings, and close with recent developments and current lawsuits facing the courts.
