Switzerland: Nazi-confiscated artworks on display in Bern

Artworks confiscated by the Nazis and later discovered at the home of the late art collector, Cornelius Gurlitt, were on display in Bern on Wednesday. The collection shows works of prominent painters including Claude Monet, Gauguin, Renoir and Picasso. The pieces were found in the house of Cornelius Gurlitt, whose father Hildebrand was an art dealer working for the Nazis. The Third Reich... Еще confiscated the masterpieces, calling many of the modernist pieces «degenerate art» for being inferior or unacceptable for Nazi ideology. The works were later sold through art dealers such as Hildebrand Gurlitt. A further exhibition is set to open this Friday in Bonn, Germany, and will mostly focus on art pieces stolen from Jews.
