Search for Owner of Nicolas Rousseau Picture

August 20 2020

Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

A painting by the nineteenth century artist Nicolas Rousseau has been put on display in the World Centre for Peace, Liberty and Human Rights in France in order to find its rightful owner. The picture was returned from Germany after it was discovered that the work had been taken from its owner by an officer in the Luftwaffe during WWII. A sign has been hung next to work appealing for information.

On another note, it seems that the 'wear a mask while holding a painting' look is gathering popularity in the media.
