Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Discriminating Thieves: Nazi-Looted Art and Restitution

January 26, 2019 - January 26, 2020

After the World War II, Allied forces found much of the art and looted by Nazis and returned it to the rightful owners. But other items disappeared in the chaos of war and remain lost to this day. In light of this fact, the Nelson-Atkins researches the ownership history of its artworks. This research revealed that the works in this exhibition were looted by the Nazis during World War II, returned to their owners after the war, and subsequently acquired legally by the Nelson-Atkins.
