Painting looted by Nazis to be returned to Jewish heirs

first_imgBERLIN (AP) — A commission in Germany has ruled that a painting by expressionist Erich Heckel that is in a German art museum was likely unlawfully obtained under the Nazis and should be returned to the heirs of a Jewish historian who once owned it. The commission said Heckel’s “Geschwister,” or “Siblings,” was owned by Jewish historian Max Fischer until 1934, the year before he fled Germany. The 1913 painting ended up back with Heckel, and the artist donated it to the Kunsthalle Karlsruhe museum in 1967. The commission said Tuesday that it had to assume Fischer lost possession of the painting due to Nazi persecution. His heirs have said they plan on donating the piece to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.last_img

Shanghai are keen to bring the attacker back ahead of the planned resumption of the Chinese Super League, which has also been hit by the coronavirus pandemic. The likelihood is this will be in late June. Meanwhile, the Reds await confirmation of when the Premier League is due to get under way, with the Project Restart plan also still to be finalised. The players are back at the Aon Training Complex but are following social distancing guidelines by working in small groups with no contact.Advertisement Loading… “The loan deal went until the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back,” the boss told us, in today’s episode of MUTV Group Chat. “We’re in dialogue. They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allowed him to play for his dream club. ”It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, hopefully with a trophy for us. At the moment, nothing has been agreed. Their league is going to get started soon so we’re just waiting to see.” Ighalo’s arrival came when Marcus Rashford had been ruled out with a back problem but the England international is currently training and Ole has told us he expects to have a full squad to choose from when the sport does return. read also:Odion Ighalo opens up on Manchester United future In addition to completing the Premier League fixtures, United are also hoping to be able to compete for silverware in the Emirates FA Cup and Europa League, providing everything goes to plan – competitions Ighalo has already scored two goals apiece in.
