In fact, German authorities discovered the location earlier, in 2011, when a search was conducted to the apartment of the son of the art collector Hildebrand Gurlitt, collaborationist of the Nazis, which was designed by the Hitler’s team to sell the art abroad. It is supposed that Gurlitt did to lose many works during his activity and now this is a real treasure.
The spokesman of the German government, Steffen Seibert, said now to journalists that after several months of investigation the officials don’t know about any restitution demand. On the other part, however, Dieter Graumann, the head of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, affirms that at least 200 of the pictures were officially reported missing. “It’s still a tiny fraction of the total number of pictures we are looking for” said Julian Radcliffe, chairman of the London-based Art Loss Register.
