Germany returns looted painting
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.
