"The Fate of Art in Vienna during the Nazi Era"

Many works of art that were in private collections before World War II were displaced, looted, or forcibly sold during the National Socialist period. Recent attempts to recover lost and stolen masterworks have led to high-profile ownership disputes in the United States. In this lecture, Rutgers alumna Victoria S. Reed, Curator for Provenance at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, examines the fate of these collections. She pays particular attention to the journeys of highlights from the MFA’s collection, as well as recognized paintings by Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.
