The Getty Museum has returned a landscape by Pieter Molijn to the heirs of Jacques Goudstikker, the Dutch art dealer whose stock was seized by the Nazis.

The Getty bought the painting in 1972 at Sotheby's after it had passed through several hands, but have very honourably decided to surrender ownership. More on Bloomberg here, and at the Getty here. There is a fascinating website on Goudstikker's collection here.
