Nazi picture seized in Florida

September 9 2011


A picture by Girolamo Romano, Christ Carrying the Cross, has been impounded in Florida after questions were raised over its provenance. The picture had been loaned to the Brogan Museum for an exhibition by the Pinacoteca di Brera. The heirs of collector Giuseppe Gentili, a Jew who owned the work in the 1940s, have now come forward to seek its restitution.
