Restitution of Nazi Art Plunder: Recent Successes and Ongoing Challenges
The seizure of Jewish assets, including art collections, was central to the Nazi Final Solution. Join us for a special in-person panel discussion on the continuing efforts to restitute looted works of art, examining a case study of the Gutmann collection with descendant Simon Goodman.
Time & Location
Apr 20, 7:00 PM
Holocaust Museum LA, 100 The Grove Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90036, USA
The victims of Nazi art looting and their descendants have been pursuing restitution since the end of the Second World War. A key component of this effort is provenance research, the study of an object's history, including theft, sales, and changes in ownership. The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles holds a vast repository of materials related to Nazi art plunder.
Join our panel discussion on recent successes and challenges in the resitution of Nazi-looted art with panelists Simon Goodman, grandson of Fritz and Louise Gutmann and author of The Orpheus Clock: The Search for My Family's Art Treasures and Isabella Zuralski-Yeager, art historian and retired senior archivist at the Getty Research Institute. This conversation will be moderated by Elizabeth Campbell, historian of Nazi art looting and Founding Director of the Center for Art Collection Ethics (ACE) at the University of Denver.
