“The heirs of a French art dealer are demanding that a Norwegian museum return one of its featured paintings, a Matisse that was confiscated by the Nazis in 1941 in Paris. The family of Paul Rosenberg, a prominent Parisian gallery owner, has documents showing that the painting, known as ‘Woman in Blue in Front of Fireplace,’ or ‘Blue Dress in a Yellow Armchair,’ was among those in the possession of the Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering in 1942. The documents include a long list, stamped with Goering’s initials, itemizing artworks taken from Mr. Rosenberg’s vault.” [NYT]
