Nazi Looted Art, Stolen Art and Our Museums:
Why The Ghosts of the Past Still Haunt Us

Presenter: Raymond Dowd, Esq.

With last year’s film Monuments Men, the upcoming Woman in Gold starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, and with the documentary The Rape of Europa on PBS, the story of Adolph Hitler’s art looting program is finally gaining Hollywood’s attention. A find of 1,400 artworks in Munich last year in the possession of Cornelius Gurlitt, the son of one of Hitler’s art dealers, raised an international firestorm. But the unfinished business of World War II remains unfinished, with governments and families continuing to trace stolen artworks that are hidden in public and private art collections worldwide. With D.A. Robert Morgenthau’s seizure of Egon Schiele’s Portrait of Wally and Dead City III in 1998, world attention focused on the topic. Speaker Raymond J. Dowd of Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP brought the first federal Holocaust-era Nazi art looting case to trial in the Southern District of New York and argued it twice to the Second Circuit. In an entertaining and art-filled lecture, he will present the law, the history and the ethical concerns that continue to face our courts today.
