Ger­many’s cul­ture min­is­ter has re­turned a Camille Pis­sarro paint­ing found in the late col­lec­tor Cor­nelius Gurlitt’s art trove. Monika Gruet­ters’ of­fice said Ger­many re­turned The Seine seen from the Pont-Neuf, the Lou­vre in the back­ground to France ear­lier this week. It said Fri­day it couldn’t give de­tails on the re­cip­i­ent of the work, looted in 1942 from French busi­ness­man Max Heil­bronn. Gurlitt died in May 2014, months af­ter Ger­man au­thor­i­ties an­nounced they had seized more than 1,000 art­works at his apart­ment, many of them stolen by Nazis from their own­ers.
