Les marchands d’Hitler

n February 2012, a fabulous collection of artworks was discovered in an old Munich apartment: some 1,500 drawings and paintings acquired largely during the Third Reich by one of Hitler’s art dealers, Hildebrand Gurlitt. In the 1930s, this modern art specialist used his connections with the Nazis to amass these treasures. In 1940, in occupied Paris, the French art market profited from this plundered art, and Gurlitt became a regular at the Hôtel Drouot, where such works were sold. After his death, his son Cornelius agreed to return the works to their rightful heirs.
