Looted Family Hails NCMA's Handling of Disputed Cranach


Author(s):
Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of Art's return of a painting stolen by the Nazis in 1940 to its rightful owners is hailed as a model for others engaged in similar claims. The painting, \"Madonna and Child in a Landscape,\" painted by Lucas Cranach in the 16th-century, was in turn sold back to the museum by the family for $600,000. It is the first such claim to stolen art work to end without a long court fight.
