The Recovery of Nazi-Looted Art: The Bloch-Bauer Klimt Paintings

6/16/2014; 84 minutes

Los Angeles attorney E. Randol Schoenberg presents an illustrated talk focusing upon five paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen by the Nazis from the Viennese family of Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer in 1938. As a result of a landmark case that Schoenberg argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Klimt paintings, valued at over $325 million, were returned by Austria to their rightful heir in 2006.
